SunLine Granted Restraining Order Against Clean Energy.
According to the newspaper, Superior Court judge James Cox granted the restraining order to protect SunLine from retaliatory actions feared made by Clean Energy in response to the suit.
The paper noted that SunLine is suing Clean Energy officials, including former SunLine general manager Richard Cromwell III, for acting against the transit agency's financial interest.
The Desert Sun said SunLine alleges that Clean Energy president Andrew Littlefair's warning earlier this year about the company's potential removal of CNG equipment from area stations followed SunLine's request for an audit of Clean Energy's business with the transit agency.
The newspaper said SunLine further charges that Clean Energy increased the cost of CNG as a direct result of SunLine's request, noting that CNG prices rose from $1.45 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) prior to the request to $1.95 per GGE several months later.
Clean Energy has denied the validity of SunLine's suit.
