A federal judge’s order earlier this week means Martinsville will not be able to get out of paying some of the development costs toward a discontinued power plant project in Ohio, according to City Attorney Eric Monday.
Martinsville’s share of those costs is about $951,000, city Utilities Director Dennis Bowles has said.
Judge Michael Watson of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio Eastern Division ruled that a limitation of liability clause applies in a suit filed by American Municipal Power (AMP) against Bechtel Power Corp.
Martinsville buys wholesale electricity through AMP, which is based in Ohio.
