The discovery phase is still ongoing in a suit brought against Entergy Texas after a home the company worked on caught fire.

On April 16 Miguel Sanchez and Jose Hernandez filed suit against Entergy in Jefferson County District Court, citing negligence and breach of contract.

Court records show the latest filing in the case was a certificate of discovery filed on Nov. 21.

The document states Entergy has responded to the plaintiffs’ requests for disclosure, interrogatories and production.

In their suit, the plaintiffs claim they entered into an agreement with the electric provider to connect power lines to their home on Sept. 27, 2013. Entergy allegedly installed and connected the electrical power lines on the house backwards in numerous locations, causing the house to catch fire.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages in an amount within the jurisdictional limits of the court, interest, attorney’s fees and court costs.

They are being represented in the case by attorney John Pat Parsons of Lindsay Lindsay and Parsons in Beaumont.

Entergy is represented by Beaumont attorney Christine Shannon.
