Court: Reinstate Ohio suit alleging Duke kickbacks
A federal appeals court has ordered the reinstatement of a lawsuit accusing Duke Energy Corp. of paying kickbacks to Cincinnati-area companies to win their support for a 2004 electricity rate hike.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati on Monday reversed a judge's 2009 decision dismissing the antitrust lawsuit filed on behalf of Ohio businesses and individuals. The three-judge appeals court panel says the judge incorrectly ruled that federal courts had no jurisdiction in the case.
