Court Sides with City Inspector Against Lowe's Feed and Grain

Dispute stems from a 2002 power outage that shut down the facility for 17 months

source: Bowling Green Daily News

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has ruled that former city electrical inspector Rick Maxwell is entitled to immunity from liability for his actions in dealing with business owner Don Lowe following a 2002 power outage at Lowe’s Feed and Grain, reports Bowling Green Daily News.

The appeals court’s ruling Friday upheld a decision from Warren Circuit Court that there was not enough evidence to show that Maxwell acted with malicious intent to harm Lowe when discussing with the mill owner what needed to be done to have power restored at his business.

The matter has been subject to years of legal wrangling dating back to 2007, when Lowe sued Maxwell and the city of Bowling Green, claiming that Maxwell improperly terminated electricity to the mill following the storm-caused outage and then conspired with the city to deny power to the mill for the next 17 months.
