json/common.rb:122:in `parse’: 574: unexpected token at ” (JSON::ParserError)

I have been writing some scripts in ruby to parse JSON generated data. To do this it requires the json ruby gem which works great to parse through JSON output. Anyhow I was loading files into ruby and parsing them without issue until i got to a larger file and I received the below error.
