EI Principal John R. Morris files Testimony in Support of MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company’s Acquisition of NV Energy.

In December 2013 MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company (MidAmerican), owned by Berkshire Hathaway, completed its acquisition of NV Energy.  Dr. Morris filed testimony before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission indicating that MidAmerican’s affiliations with the Kern River Gas Transmission Company and BNSF Railroad would not result in an increase in vertical market power as a result of the acquisition.  Dr. Morris also worked closely with outside counsel at Gibson Dunn on presentations to the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
