CARLSBAD — An unnamed SDG&E customer has submitted a legal claim against the city.
City Council discussed the claim in closed session on Tuesday.
City Attorney Celia Brewer reported at the Council’s public meeting later that day that the city has decided to initiate litigation, but declined to state if it is connected to the SDG&E customer’s claim.
She said the matter would be publicly disclosed with the case filing.
While the full details of the claim are unknown, it referred to the Tort Claims Act, which addresses a city’s liability for an injury. The allegation is connected to a location along the 1200 block of Stratford Lane, a residential street off of Pio Pico Drive a few blocks away from City Hall.
SDG&E claims representative Dorisela Ortiz-Renteria brought forth the claim on behalf of the customer.
