Proof of Purchase
Gruber v. Starion, Inc.,Case No. X03-HHD-CV-17- 6075408-S. Connecticut Superior Court, Judicial District of Hartford
The lawsuit alleges that Starion falsely claimed in its contracts with customers that its variable rate for electricity supply services would “reflect” the “cost of electricity” that Starion “obtained from all sources,” which Plaintiff alleges constituted a representation that Starion’s price for variable rate electricity would fluctuate in accord with Starion’s cost of procuring that electricity. Plaintiff further alleges that, contrary to this representation, Starion in practice failed to decrease its variable rate when wholesale market rates went down. The lawsuit further alleges that Starion’s variable rate customers suffered monetary damages as a result of this alleged misconduct.
Starion denies all of Plaintiff’s claims and says that it did nothing wrong. Starion specifically states that it followed all terms of its contracts with customers, and that Plaintiff’s claims are without factual or legal merit.
