Cobb EMC Class Action $100 Million Electric Coop Case
Pallets of Checks for Our Clients
In 2010 we initiated a class action lawsuit in Cobb County near Atlanta, Georgia against Cobb Electric Membership Cooperative ("Cobb EMC") asserting that it should have returned hundreds of millions of dollars to its member-owners but was kept by the electric coop instead.
Our $100 million settlement was the largest class-action settlement in Cobb County’s history. You might not have heard of Cobb County but when the Atlanta Braves play baseball next year in their new ballpark, it will be in Cobb County.
Critics of class actions – typically large corrupt corporations or their mouthpieces – often bemoan that class members receive little money or paper coupons in settlements. Not so. The Cobb EMC class action settlement payouts range from fewer than $100 to several million dollars. The “first wave” of distributions totaling $24.6 million in checks are shown on the pallets at right. More followed.
Recovering pallets of money for our clients who were wronged. That pleases us.
