James Cameron Sued Over Power Outage

6/1/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James CameronHow would James Cameron feel if on opening night of his next big movie, someone smashed into a light and knocked out all the power to the theater?

Probably a lot like Western General Insurance Company does. The company is suing Cameron and one of his employees, Oscar Escalante. According to the suit, the employee was driving a car registered at Cameron's address when he smacked into a light pole -- knocking out power to their business for three whole days.

The company is suing the employee and Cameron for negligence , claiming the accident cost it nearly $125,000 while the power was out.

Is it just me, or is James Cameron starting to look like George Washington?

Wow what a dumb law suit. If it took three days to get the power on maybe they should sue the power company for poor service. How does it take three days to replace a power pole. Maybe Gordon Gecko is running the insurance company.
