Jury awards Vermont couple $1million in cell tower lawsuit

Felix and OlgaA jury awarded a million dollars to Olga Julinska and Felix Kniazev in a big win against  Vermont Electric Power Corp  for building a communications tower right next to their mountain top property.

Julinska and Kniasev are artists who purchased the mountaintop home as much for its inspiring 360 degree view as for the privacy it afforded.  They said the jury verdict was a victory for themselves and every other Vermont resident bullied by an imminent domain process that takes property for public good without always compensating property owners fairly.

  1. I have a 5G repeater pole 30″ from my front door. Eye level from my 2nd story condo. There are 3 more positioned in front of my complex – about 3 city blocks away and they are really close together. of my place and a gigantic tube tower a block away. I can’t sleep more than 10 minutes at a time, have developed severe headaches, stomach upset, my teeth are deteriorating and my blood pressure, etc. is off the charts. My mental and emotional health is very much affected and my some confusion, etc. The high pitch sounds are driving me crazy, you can’t muffle the sounds with headphones or a pillow either. Sometimes the constant sound is punctuated with a scale of tonal signals – morse code digital sounds. I turn off my electric and the sound never stops. My property is worth nothing now because nobody wants to live here. Please help if you know anyone who can help me. This must be stopped! My neighbors are also complaining!

  2. Our family purchased two acres next to a 2g cell tower in 2004. We grow organic vegetables & sell to several hundred families through CSA programs. In 2019 this tower was updated to 5g without telling us. All our customers stopped buying because of the radiation it can may cause.
    Is there an attorney that can help us with this issue? The tower has been sold to Crown Castle.
    Thank You

  3. My family has owned this home since 1963. The cell tower was placed behind this house in mid 90s within a football field from the back of it. My mother died from heart related issues in 2006 which was maybe normal for a 72 year old but my father had lymphoma, addisons and carcinoma that has always my question as nether smoked or drank just lived next to this tower. I bought the house from dad when he passed in 2016 and I’ve had some unexplained things come up after living here some time. Talked to attorney last week about tower and they said it would take a class action suit and a bunch of interviewing and my time and expense! Ready to join in any fight against these bastards!

  4. I have lived under the tower for 21 years. 285’ from my bedroom. Have had cancer and lots of health issues. I’ve had 5-6 dogs die of cancer in that period. A dog recently came back home after being gone for 5 years. She’s gained 10 lbs in 4 months!! All my illnesses can be explained in current research of rf radiation. No one willing to help us!! I can’t find a attorney yet. They say this is going to be a monumental fight. I’m willing to fight! This has to be changed. In 2014 I was so sick I felt like I was slowly dying. Turned out gluten was the problem. No celiac disease in family history. I don’t even have the antibodies for celiac. I thought I had really bad luck in the health area. A couple of things is natural. But someone in my home has 90% of the illnesses in a report called 21 negative symptoms of rf radiation!!

  5. I live in a high rise with a huge tmobile antanea array on my roof, I’ve been here 17 years. our manager and his wife who ran the building 20 plus years both died of cancer, my two cats have also died. I’m not working because of neurological issues that can’t be pinned down. how do you look for proof of any radiation that can be harmful? any help would be appreciated. I’ll leave my number here. 720-381-8642…

    Please help us to appeal this matter. Any suggestions??

  8. Hi Carol, Please protect yourself first by either shielding (if possible) or moving to a safer place. If you want to sue them you bear the burden of proof of harm, so having your home professionally measured and also having medical records will be needed. -Sandi
