Lawsuits Filed as Electricity Customers Remain in the Dark After Hurricane Sandy

- by

New York, NY: More than two weeks after Hurricane Sandy knocked out electricity to over eight million customers in the storm-battered northeastern US, thousands of people remain without power, and are in danger from exposed storm damaged power poles and cables.

Class actions are mounting, with lawsuits filed against Con Edison as well as the Long Island Power Authority and the National Grid, alleging negligence, reckless disregard, intentional failure and that the companies grossly neglected vital maintenance.

Residents in Tarryton, NJ, were without power for 11 days. Some communities have been without power for nearly three weeks, and have to resort to portable heaters, powered by generators which can pose independent health and safety hazards including carbon monoxide build-up.
