Records show Over & Under filed its own civil lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Burlington. It's seeking over $11 million for breach of contract, wrongful termination of a contract, willful concealment and detrimental reliance.

Vermont Gas says it looks forward to resolving the billing dispute.

Over & Under officials declined to comment.
