FirstEnergy Considering Appeal Of Civil Judgement Awarded To Local Woman

Akron-based FirstEnergy is considering appealing a judgment against the utility in a civil lawsuit.  A jury in central Ohio has ordered the utility to pay more than 34 million dollars to a former nurse who sustained brain damage when her car crashed into a utility pole.  Lisa Jones' attorneys successfully argued an hour-long wait for FirstEnergy crews to remove downed power lines from her car in 2012 caused her permanent injuries.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
