Attorney for man who froze to death plans lawsuit

BAY CITY, MICHIGAN - The attorney representing the family and estate of a 93-year-old Bay City man who froze to death after a utility restricted his electrical service plans to sue the city and power company.

Attorney Sheldon Erlich said the civil lawsuit against Bay City and Bay City Electric Light & Power will be filed. It seeks unspecified monetary damages stemming from the decision in January to place a power-limiting device on Schur's electric meter because of unpaid bills and for failing to make personal contact beforehand.

City Attorney Neil Wackerly says he hasn't received any information about the pending lawsuit.

Bay County authorities in April decided not to file criminal charges after an investigation was concluded.
