PHILADELPHIA – Counsel for PECO Energy Company has withdrawn a motion for writ of seizure to repossess its electrical meters and moved to end a case filed against a Philadelphia property owner.

On Wednesday, Angelina C. Williams filed to withdraw the writ of seizure motion and totally discontinue the case against defendant James Ubotee without prejudice, after the resolution of all previously outstanding financial obligations.

Williams initially filed the motion for a writ of seizure on March 18, seeking to direct the Philadelphia County Sheriff to repossess a pair of PECO electric meters from a property in the 6200 block of Woodland Avenue in Philadelphia, within 10 days. And further, to provide Williams with five days of advance notice so a PECO representative could be present for the repossession, in addition to a bonded locksmith if necessary.

Williams had alleged defendant Ubotee failed to make payments to PECO under the legal tariffs necessary for receiving electric service. Williams alleged Ubotee owed PECO $10,617.71, plus court costs.

Williams further claimed breach of contract against Ubotee, for allegedly refusing entry to the property on prior occasions when PECO personnel arrived to change the electric meters on site.

On behalf of PECO, Williams was seeking judgment and access to the three electric meters, each valued at $73.00 along with replevin, or repossession, of the meters themselves.

But upon resolution of the outstanding costs, Williams filed to end the case against Ubotee.

The plaintiff is represented by Williams in Philadelphia.
