According to Mr. Vignarajah, proceedings before the Public Service Commission and the court system are separate but parallel. From a legal standpoint, the PSC has not claimed that they have the final say on the issue.

Maryland representatives of District 46 (which includes most of PPNA) have sent a letter to the PSC expressing their concerns about BGE's actions.

BGE filed a Motion to Stay Litigation in the lawsuit. Plaintiffs represented by Mr. Vignarajah filed a response to that motion and the judge in the case agreed to deny the motion. You can read the response and the judge's order here.
