A Texas law firm today filed a class action suit against Sprint Nextel. The suit alleges that Sprint Nextel illegally placed their antennas on electrical towers without permission. Sprint received permission from the electric company, however according to the lawfirm, the easement given to the electric company by landowners to install towers on their land only covers electrical transmission, not other types. The suit claims that if this was the case, rights to install cellular antenna were not the electrical company's to give. The suit has been filed in Kansas, where Sprint Nextel is headquartered. No date for trial has been set yet.
