A judge in Milwaukee County recently ruled that We Energies is not required to refrain from disconnecting Chapter 128 filers’ power. A sudden and dramatic increase in Chapter 128 petitions in Milwaukee County prompted the energy provider to ask the court whether or not they were required to continue providing power to Chapter 128 filers.
Previously, We Energies would restore power and refrain from disconnecting power to delinquent customers who had filed for Chapter 128. From January to August of this year, already 3,292 people filed Chapter 128 petitions in Milwaukee County. In 2009, a total of just over 1,000 people filed Chapter 128 petitions in the county.
Circuit Judge William Pocan ruled that disconnecting utilities does not qualify as an “execution, attachment or garnishment” prevented under Chapter 128 laws.
