Mass tort lawsuit filed over smart meter health injuries

gavel-judgementAttorneys David Kyle and Paul Overett have filed a mass tort lawsuit against two California utilities:  Southern California Edison (SCE) and Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) for health damages from exposure to smart meters, and or smart grid.  Also named in the lawsuit are smart meter installer companies, Corix and Wellington and smart meter manufacturers, Itron and Landis and Gyr, with possibly more defendants to be added as the lawsuit progresses.

Attorney David Kyle has previously won a small claims lawsuit against SCE over smart meter installation, and  settled with PG&E in a wrongful death suit involving an alleged smart meter fire.

Sixteen plaintiffs, ten SCE customers and six PG&E customers allege they suffered health effects ranging from headaches, insomnia, chronic fatigue, ringing in the ears, dizziness, heart palpitations, to heart attacks and medical implant interference from exposure to smart meters.

The suit alleges the defendants withheld important safety information associated with the use of smart meters as well as multiple violations of CA laws, including California Civil Code section 1710 which defines deceit as an untrue assertion or suppression of a fact so as to mislead.

Plaintiffs allege negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud and deceit, and products liability.

Elizabeth Barris, organizer for the lawsuit invites customers from other California utilities, including municipally run utilities, whose health has been effected by smart meters or smart grid to join the lawsuit.

    A smart meter was installed on our home aprox. 3 years ago while we were away from home. I am a 55 year old female and have always felt great!! I started having diarrhea every day going on 2 years!!, I had every test at my doctor’s, and they couldn’t find the problem. This is devastating! I get very dizzy, can’t think straight, feel confused, severe insomnia, and very forgetful!! I was having tingling in my arms, hands and legs, and I get nauseas, . I know it’s the smart because we took a week trip a lot of this went away. I am going to have them take this off our our home! I am going to join in the class action lawsuit. My husband is having very strange symptoms as well. It’s horrible to go through this.

  4. For two months I have had severe problems with high pitched frequencies in my home, resonating from the four smart meters (gas and electric) that are attached to my home (or neighbors’ homes). I am unable to relax, or sleep in my home–and have had to resort to sleeping at someone else’s home.
    I am constantly tired, where before I was energetic. I am ill as well with Lyme disease and Babesia Duncani (incurred due to a tick bite in December of 2012). I am on four antibiotics and have to pay out of pocket to see specialist. I was getting/feeling better; but now am getting sicker (as my immune system seems depleted).
    I DO want to join the class action lawsuit. I live in Davis California and have PG&E. I am thinking of going with propane and going off grid (as I do have solar PVCs about 12 total). I try hard to do the right thing, but my health is at stake and PG&E is callus to say the least.
