Three Aspen businesses settled their lawsuits with engineering firms that caused a lengthy city-wide power outage in the summer of 2014. Aspen Public Radio’s Carolyn Sackariason reports.
Over Easy, the Square Grouper and Radio Boardshop sued LKP Engineering, Odell Drilling and a West End homeowner. They sought thousands of dollars in lost wages and profits from the Aug. fourth incident that knocked out power for 12 hours. Their cases were heading to trial next month until a judge dismissed them last week. The parties came to an out-of-court settlement.
