LIPA filed a complaint in the New York State Supreme Court against PSEG Long Island for breach of contract and specific performance related to Tropical Storm Isaias. The filing had been recommended by DPS and ordered by the LIPA Board of Trustees based on the investigative findings. The complaint seeks $70 million in damages related to PSEG Long Island’s inadequate design, implementation, and testing of its outage management and communications systems, which failed during the storm, and the absence of business continuity plans in the face of such failures during a major weather event.
