NEW ORLEANS, March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI).

On September 13, 2018, numerous gas explosions destroyed dozens of homes and businesses in Massachusetts, causing one death, dozens of injuries, and the forced relocation of approximately 8,600 households, which investigators determined was caused by over-pressurization of a gas main belonging to Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NiSource.  On November 1, 2018, the Company disclosed that it was "subject to a criminal investigation" by the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney's Office and had been served with grand jury subpoenas.

Recently, the Company disclosed that it is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to its financial disclosures prior to the explosions.

The Company's actions, directed by its executives, have exposed it to significant litigation including a class action lawsuit brought by the victims of the explosions for failing to properly and safely maintain its gas distribution system, as well as the cost of defending the Company against government investigations and the penalties, fines and  other  liabilities and expenses associated with those investigations.

KSF's investigation is focusing on whether NiSource's officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to NiSource's shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
