Mississippi’s Billion Dollar Entergy Lawsuit on Hold

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A billion-dollar lawsuit filed by the state of Mississippi against Entergy Mississippi is on hold. Attorney General Jim Hood is suing Entergy Mississippi, claiming the company deliberately sold overpriced power to customers from 1998 to 2009. The suit argues the unit of New Orleans-based Entergy Corp. had a duty to use less expensive power for customers. The trial had been set to begin on Monday but was postponed by U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves until at least April. Hood is asking Entergy to refund money to 447,000 customers in Western Mississippi.
