Case Name

Lori Sanborn, et al. v. Viridian Energy Inc., et al.,
Case No. 3:14-cv-01731-SRU
District Court for the District of Connecticut

Case Summary

The class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of Viridian’s energy customers and alleges that the company charged an excessive variable rate for gas and electricity regardless of fluctuations in the underlying wholesale market price. Separate class action lawsuits were filed both in Connecticut and Pennsylvania and allege that Viridian breached its contracts with customers and its duty of good faith and fair dealing, and also violated various consumer protection laws. Viridian denies any wrongdoing, and contends that its variable rates were adequately disclosed, consistent with its representations, and properly calculated based on the relevant market factors for electric and gas service.
