LIPA customers file class action lawsuit against utility company

HICKSVILLE - A class action lawsuit was filed this week by LIPA customers.

At least one legal analyst says it's going to be a tough case for customers to prove that the power authority breached its contract, was negligent and committed fraud.

"It's a hard, hard case to win because the utility companies are gonna come in and say we couldn't anticipate a storm of this magnitude," said legal analyst Paul Callan.
