Another Win For Dr. Benumof's Proposition 218 Clients and the Water Ratepayers of the City of Lincoln

Posted by Ben Benumof | Oct 26, 2017 | 0 Comments

Dr. Benumof, in conjunction with his colleague and co-cousel, Erik Benink, Esq., recently settled another highly publicized Proposition 218 water rate lawsuit against the City of Lincoln.   Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the City's ratepayers that have been overcharged through the City's tiered water rate system shall receive a water rate refund from a $1.2 million refund pool.  

The following CBS Sacramento news clip features Dr. Benumof's clients, Jerry Jackson and Chuck Schmidt, who share their personal stories about how they got involved in local government and became figureheads in their communities fighting for government transparency and equitable, cost-based rate-making.
