Comcast goes to federal court to block $1 million fine imposed by City of Modesto

Comcast goes to federal court to block $1 million fine imposed by City of Modesto

Modesto, fed up with trying to get Comcast and its' predecessors to fix thousands of bad grounds around the city, finally started levying a $1/day per safety hazard fine. At $1.08 million dollars and growing by over $20k, Comcast is now asking a federal court to intervene. No word on whether Comcast has started fixing the bad grounds. In the past, Comcast has dismissed them as merely technical violations, which I suppose is true during the 99.9999% of the time they're not conducting a lightning strike or the current from a downed power line.
