James Cameron Sued Over Power Outage

How 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.
