Enstar or Enron?
Enstar, LLC is a (for) profit corporation. How in any sense of good corporate decisions could they believe they are justified in passing on their corporate "errors" to their clients/customers? Enron's stockholders should bear the cost of their mistakes. However, if I was a stockholder I would be looking at an investigation of the entire upper levels of corporation operations to determine just who got bonuses during the time the U.S. Government was (knowingly) being overcharged. To say the customers got the benefit of what Enstar did and should be responsible to repay the ill gotten gains of Enstar is just ludicrous.
