JCP&L Hit With Lawsuit

Twenty New Jersey residents and businesses are suing Jersey Central Power & Light for its handling of Superstorm Sandy. The Simon Law Group, representing the irate plaintiffs, alleges breach of contract, misconduct, negligence and consumer fraud.

The public utility company has been the focus of numerous complaints from customers who had been left in the dark for days.

“These monopolistic public utilities have lost focus on providing services to the people they serve,” said Britt Simon, Managing Partner of the Simon Law Group. “Instead, they are blinded by profits, big executive salaries and greed.”

Simon said JCP&L, owned and operated by Ohio-based FirstEnergy Corp., “needs to do a better job.”

Governor Chris Christie credited JCP&L for a job well done at a press event last week, saying their performance improved since Irene last year.

The utility’s response came under strong scrutiny last August; it was also the focus of legislative hearings.

As of 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, JCP&L had not seen the complaint and could not comment.

ConEd, a utility company that handles much of New York City, was recently named in a similar class action lawsuit in New York’s Westchester County Supreme Court.
