Local lighting company files lawsuit against city of Chattanooga

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A Chattanooga lighting company claims Mayor Andy Berke and two others intentionally broke their contract and now they’re suing.

In 2011, the city entered a $6 million contract with Global Green Lighting.

Five-thousand L.E.D. lamps were installed on downtown streets.

Since then, the city reports that 14% of them have failed.

But, the lawsuit claims Berke, EPB, and its former president conspired to halt funding for the contract.
