Cablevision sued over disruption in service caused by Sandy

Plaintiffs seek $250 million in damages

A couple of New Yorkers are not happy about how their cable provider handled the outages resulting from Hurricane Sandy, and they’re taking it to court.

Yesterday, father and son Irwin and Jeffrey Bard filed suit against Cablevision Systems Corp., claiming the cable provider failed to offer rebates to more than 1 million of its subscribers who lost TV, Internet and phone service after Sandy ripped through the area. The class action suit seeks $250 million in damages.
