General court 02

CHICAGO — A grocery store is suing Commonwealth Edison Company, a public utility provider, citing alleged retaliation and violation of federal law for wrongfully cutting off its electricity.

Super Mexi Corporation filed a complaint on April 6 in the Cook County Circuit Court alleging the defendant disconnected plaintiff's electrical services incorrectly.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Commonwealth Edison retaliated with shut-off due to an unfavorable arbitration award stemming from a billing dispute with the company.

The plaintiff seeks actual damages of $88,500, punitive damages in excess of $300,000, court costs, permanent injunction, other damages and any further relief this court grants. The plaintiff is represented by Tyler Geppert of Seiden Netzky Law Group LLC in Chicago.
