Legal Question

Asked on: 11/26/12, 11:19 am

More than 5 years ago, while attempting to connect a pipe, a contractor working for a homeowner inadvertently damaged the utility company's pipe. The contractor called the utility company to report the incident. The Utility Company came and fixed it, and therafter sent a bill to the contractor. Apparently the contractor did not pay. Out of the blues the utility company then took the homeowner to court, having never contacted homeowner during those 5 years. Is this valid by the Utility company?
