Ind. Gov't. - " North Carolina regulators hire Chicago law firm to investigate whether Duke Energy misled ahead of merger"

From an AP story today reported by Emery Dalesio that begins:

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina utilities regulators said Wednesday they have hired a former federal prosecutor with experience digging into corporate affairs to reveal whether regulators were misled ahead of a takeover that created America’s largest electric company.

The North Carolina Utilities Commission said it has hired Anton Valukas and the Jenner & Block law firm, which he heads in Chicago. The ex-prosecutor and his firm are tasked with investigating what happened before regulators approved Charlotte-based Duke Energy Corp. taking over Raleigh-based Progress Energy Inc.
