Guam – A Guam resident named Christopher Allen has filed a complaint in the District Court of Guam seeking an injunction against the Guam Power Authority to prevent GPA from putting a smart meter on his house.
The suit was filed yesterday, “per pro se,” meaning that Allen is representing himself.
When contacted by PNC News Allen said “I’m going to let the lawsuit speak for itself.” He acknowledged that he is not an attorney, but he declined to say what business he is in. “I’m not trying to be popular. It’ll effect my business,” he said.
When asked why he filed the lawsuit he said “google smart meter dangers.” Allen said he is not looking for any financial damages. “I simply don’t want the meter on my house. I’m not looking for a penny,” he said.
Allen said his lawsuit seeks only to stop GPA from putting a smart meter on his house, but “personally,” he said, “I don’t think they should be placed on anyone’s house.”
The lawsuit asserts a wide range of harms and violations of Constitutional amendments.
It claims that smart meters would constitute “civil and criminal theft by ‘intentionally’ intercepting, through ‘wire tapping of the Plaintiff’s residence’ … by intentionally installing and maintaining a … communication device.”
The lawsuit maintains that electronic data is private property and its collection by the smart meters would violate the 4th Amendment prohibition against unreasonable government intrusions into a private home as well as the 5th amendment which reads in part: “..nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.” And the suit also alleges violations of the 9th and 10th Amendments too “by depriving the Plaintiff .. the right to life, liberty and property.”
