Three Pacific Northwest law firms are behind the class action lawsuit against PacifiCorp and Pacific Power. They announced an amended complaint Monday that includes more people impacted by the wildfires.
The lawsuit alleges that the utilities “failed to properly maintain and operate their electrical infrastructure,” which they say ultimately caused deadly wildfires during a wind storm on Labor Day weekend.
The revised lawsuit includes more details about what the plaintiffs went through, and how they claim they saw electrical equipment starting fires.
The law firms involved, Keller Rohrback L.L.P., Stoll Berne, and Nick Kahl, LLC, say they are looking to represent others who were impacted by the fires.
KATU News has reached out to the utilities, who said they do not comment on pending litigation.
