Judge finds AmeriGas breached contract with local resident
On Tuesday, August 14, in a small claims hearing at Mono County Superior Court, Judge Pro Tem Gregg Martino ruled in favor of the plaintiff in Ulich v. AmeriGas Propane L.P.
The plaintiff, Andrew Ulich, is a homeowner in the Snowcreek Crest homeowner’s association.
He sued his gas provider for breach of contract, fraud and punitive damages.
Judge Martino found AmeriGas breached its contract but did not commit fraud or punitively damage Ulich.
The court ordered AmeriGas to reimburse Ulich for charging him a fee of ten cents on every gallon of gas he used over the last four years. In all, AmeriGas will repay Ulich $421.19. The statute of limitations only goes back four years, but Ulich has paid the fee since 1991.
