Anaheim and Southern California Edison Co. this week settled a series of lawsuits that resulted in $3.9 million being awarded to the city. The four lawsuits, filed in 1985 and 1986, involved disputes over the city's right to buy power from the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the rates Edison charges for electrical power sold to the city. The lawsuits also involved the city of Riverside, which was sued by Edison and then joined Anaheim in suing the utility company.
