This is just another example of why we so desperately need tort reform in this country. Courts declaring that energy monopolies have less than 14 days to repair or restore an excavation on a street with high pedestrian traffic is unreasonable in expectation.
If we keep allowing our courts to make such decisions, they will kill the business of every energy monopoly that cannot complete infrastructure repairs in under two weeks! These companies will pack up and leave America for nations that actually like having energy monopolies, and the services and jobs they provide.
Who is John Galt? Will we never learn?
Onward we march towards the Big-Government nanny state, where businesses get punished for success. Won't anybody stand up to the liberal, activist judges who continue to place chains on the free-market idea of competitive energy monopolies?
