When does the PUCO have jurisdiction over a claim

In Ohio, as in most states, public utilities have significant influence and power. One way in which the utility exercises that power is to try to move a case in litigation to a more utility-friendly venue, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). Ohio Revised Code 4905.26 vests the PUCO with jurisdiction to hear and decide claims related to the provision of service by utilities.
