In January, Sacramento Smart Meter Awareness member Mark Graham filed a lawsuit against SMUD in Sacramento County Superior Court, for elimination of opt out charges and a credit for the charges already paid.
A number of Sacramento residents spoke at the Feb. 4th SMUD meeting, where the lawsuit was presented to the directors. (video above) They have now heard an earful about the problems related to smart meters- maybe one of these days they will change their policy and begin to protect public health and safety. Mark Graham’s lawsuit is about the validity of the smart meter opt out charges, not directly about wireless radiation and health impacts, but one outcome of the lawsuit could be greater attention and awareness of the health impacts of wireless radiation.
There has been coverage of Mr. Graham’s lawsuit and the smart meter issue generally, in both the Sacramento Bee and the Sacramento News and Review. More information can be found on the Sacramento Smart Meter Awareness lawsuit web page.
One of the speakers in support of the lawsuit, Marlene de Pinto, summed up her public statement by saying:
“I think there are a lot of hurt people, and I just wanted to give them a voice”
Thanks to everyone who continue to raise their voice against the smart grid program- silence is death when faced with the widespread misinformation being disseminated by utilities.
