Affected residents of westchester, Putnam and dutchess counties should consider a class action lawsuit against NYSEG. At the very least there has been negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress. There quite possibly have been a breach of fiduciary duty. There may even be a case for theft by conversion if they sent workers whose salaries we paid somewhere else to work to our detriment. This would be in addition to actuals loses in time and money and pain and suffering. It might even be better if each household took them to small claims court indivivually. In small claims court they could not send in a high priced lawyer to represent them.
