July 30, 2012 (Alpine) -- Alpine business owners have been invited to a meeting tonight, July 30 at 6 p.m. in the Alpine Community Center Oak Room, 1830 Alpine Blvd. in Alpine, to discuss possible litigation. A letter from the law firm of Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire LLP in San Diego states that Alpine business owners "may have a claim against San Diego Gas & Electric Company for business losses resulting from construction of the Sunrise Powerlink.
The law firm will discuss a potential class action lawsuit and advise business owners on the legal time limits for filing legal action to pursue their rights.
Several Alpine businesses closed their doors and others suffered loss of business during the roughly two-year construction period for Powerlink through downtown Alpine, where streets were torn up to underground the line.
