Columbia Gas v. Borough of State College – Public Documents

5.13.13 Columbia Gas Complaint

This document also includes a May 23, 2013 filing by Borough Solicitor Terry Williams, accepting service and listing stipulations by both parties that they were in negotiations, providing an extension of time for the defendants to respond to the complaint.

No other documents related to this case were available at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte as of this morning.

Update/Comment

One interesting question raised by Columbia Gas’ legal argument:

  • Who is the “public” in a confrontation between a gas corporation, and the voters and elected and appointed officials of a town?

Another question:

  • If the Borough Council and Borough Manager are neither responsible nor legally empowered to protect residents’ health, safety and welfare – as Columba Gas argues – then who is?
