Douglas V. Link and Diane Link v. The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and FirstEnergy Service Company, Case No. 2015-0132
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
-Can an electric utility company be liable to a motorist injured when striking a pole alongside the road that the utility wasn't required to move by "any applicable law"?
-Does a county engineer's directive to move a pole revoke a utility company's permission to leave the pole in place, and leave the company open to a liability claim from a motorist who struck the pole?
