Detroit Sues Lighting Manufacturer Over Failed Street Lights

The City of Detroit filed a lawsuit against Leotek Electronics USA, an LED lighting manufacturer based in California, claiming more than 20,000 LED street lights purchased less than 5 years ago are failing. The lawsuit, filed in United States District Court in Eastern Michigan, claims Detroit’s Public Lighting Authority bought 25,320 E-Cobra Luminaires from Leotek at a cost of $3,962,988 in 2014 and 2015. The suit says the LED streetlights were purchased with a 10-year warranty. However, the city claims about 20,000 of the Leotek luminaires are prematurely dimming and burning out, leaving neighborhoods in the dark. The suit goes on to say that the PLA purchased lighting from other manufacturers, and there are no problems. http://lightedmag.com/detroit-sues-lighting-manufacturer-over-failed-street-lights/
