The owners of a North Andover, MA home where a day care business also operated are among those suing Columbia Gas after a series of gas-driven fires and explosions across the Merrimack Valley on Sept. 13, according to court papers. Patrick Haines, one of their attorneys and a Partner with Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC, of Austin, Texas, said he plans to be in superior court on Wednesday for the initial court appearance. He said he has a professional background with class-action suits which “are good for some cases” but not necessarily appropriate for Merrimack Valley gas disaster cases. The gas disaster cases “involve such varied individual personal stories and trauma. I think most of my clients have (post-traumatic stress disorder) and I don’t see how a class action can be used for that,” Haines added.
