Rosenstein: DOJ to Forgo New Memo, But Will Review Current Policies

In the midst of Florida’s post-Irma recovery, trial lawyers are “trying to exploit a power outage,” reports the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board.

The “storm-chasing attorneys” are seeking between $2 billion and $3 billion in a lawsuit against Florida Power & Light, accusing them of not properly caring for their infrastructure, which resulted in a statewide power outage. While the editorial board writes the outage was “no doubt aggravating,” they point to how power restoration was much quicker than that of other recent storms.

The piece also highlights questionable relations between Miami-based MSP Recovery Law, one of the firms who filed the class action suit, and local government officials. The editorial questions whether the city’s refusal to scale back trees and bushes (a decision that made securing the energy infrastructure more difficult) may have been caused by a local official’s “motivations other than civic virtue for deflecting blame to the utility.”
