Item 5.  Other Events

As previously reported, Southern California Edison Company (SCE), the public utility subsidiary of Edison International, has
entered into an agreement with the California Public Utilities Commission to settle SCE's federal district court lawsuit seeking
recovery of power procurement costs in retail electric rates.  On October 5, 2001, the federal district court signed and entered a
stipulated judgment approving the terms of the settlement agreement.  On October 26, 2001, The Utility Reform Network (TURN), an
intervenor in the lawsuit, filed a motion in the federal court of appeals for a stay of the judgment pending appeal.  On
October 30, 2001, a two-judge panel of the court of appeals issued an order temporarily staying the district court's October 5
judgment and remanding the matter to the district court for 14 days for the limited purpose of allowing TURN to present its motion
for a stay of judgment to the district court in the first instance.  The court of appeals directed TURN to formally present its
motion for a stay to the district court within five days, and to notify the court of appeals within three days after the district
court's ruling whether TURN wishes to pursue its October 26 motion for a stay of judgment pending appeal.

SCE issued a media statement about the order of the court of appeals.  A copy of the media statement is attached as Exhibit 99.
