Superior Court Justice Upholds $13.6M Verdict Against Wind Power Firms

Maine Superior Court Justice Michaela Murphy denied motions filed by First Wind Holdings LLC and its four subsidiaries, in response to last fall's $13.6 million verdict in favor of the Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative. The $13.6M jury verdict was one of the largest ever awarded in Maine.

Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative is represented by Preti Flaherty attorneys Sigmund Schutz, Joseph Donahue, and Benjamin Piper.

An Excerpt:

"...the cooperative's lead trial lawyer, Sigmund Schutz of the Preti Flaherty LLP law firm, said Murphy "upheld the jury's verdict that the defendants [First Wind] had acted in bad faith."
