PSC adopts new rule on utilities legal fee
Brandon Presley recently led an effort to prohibit utility companies from being able to recoup legal fees in cases where they have been found to owe customers refunds. Currently, utilities can seek recovery from consumers of costs associated with appeals, even when a finding has been made that the utility owes money back to their customers.
“This is real simple: consumers should not have to foot the bill to sue themselves. Nothing is fair about asking the people who are owed money to pay for the other side in a court case. That would be like asking the people who win a case in court to pay for the losing side’s legal fees,” Presley said. “No utility customer should have to be paying to fight against their own wallet.”
