The article highlights the judgement of the court on the lawsuit filed against RWE Npower for energy overpricing in Great Britain. The case was compared to the celebrated and never-ending fictional lawsuit in Charles Dickens' "Bleak House" novel. The problem centres on how many units of gas Npower can charge its customers for each year at the higher of its two rates. Part of the confusion is over which 12 months is involved: the tariff year or the calendar year, according to the article.
