Lawsuits continue to be filed against SCE by Thomas Fire victims

Andra Belknap, Ojai Valley News reporter
Westlake Village-based attorney Alexander Robertson IV filed a complaint against Southern California Edison (SCE) in Ventura County Superior Court Jan. 11, alleging SCE negligence caused the Thomas Fire. 
Robertson said the complaint includes approximately 40 Ventura County residents who suffered property loss due to the blaze. Eight plaintiffs are from the Ojai Valley.
As of Jan. 11, a joint investigation by the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) and the Ventura County Fire Department (VCFD) has not determined the cause of the fire, which began Dec. 4. 
SCE spokesman Brian Leventhal said he is unable to comment on pending litigation.
