AG Coakley seeks more than $16m in fines against National Grid for response to October snowstorm and Tropical Storm Irene

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley announced Thursday that she was seeking more than $16 million in fines against National Grid for what she said was the company’s subpar performance in restoring power after Tropical Storm Irene last August and the rare early snowstorm in October.
