NEW ORLEANS – A local rectory and priest are suing Entergy after a power surge allegedly destroyed a brand new air conditioning unit.

Blessed Sacrament St. Joan of Arc Rectory (BBSJA) and Father Charles Andrus filed suit against Entergy Services Inc.-Metro and Bayou, Louisiana and the Worley Company in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Dec. 18, 2013.

BSSJA is suing for property damage arising out of a transformer fuse failure that occurred on Dec. 10, 2012. They allege that a failed transformer fuse and subsequent spike in power resulted in BSSJA being forced to replace a newly purchased air conditioning unit. They want to be compensated for the cost of the air conditioning unit and the cost of installation.

Plaintiff is represented by attorney Jerry Settle of New Orleans.

Case is assigned to Division C Judge Sidney H. Cates IV.

Case no. 2013-11677.
