Gush Etzion Class-Action Suit Against Electric Co. OKd

The Tel Aviv District Court approved, Sunday, the filing of a class action suit by 512 residents of the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities against the Israel Electric Company for damages resulting from disruptions and cutoffs of power. In rejecting electric-company claims, the court ruled that the outages exceeded the norms for Israel and the Jerusalem region in particular.

The court said the utility had to provide power in accordance with the national average, without specifying how. Another hearing was scheduled for next month.
