Judge denies Energy Corporation of America's appeal

Last Thursday, a federal judge from Pennsylvania denied Energy Corporation of America's (ECA) motion to overturn his judgment-a judgment that awarded nearly $912,000 to Greene County, PA landowners. The judgment was awarded to the landowners-some of whom represented by Bill Caroselli of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman-in a gas royalties class action due to unpaid royalties. The judge contended that the plaintiffs provided enough evidence and sufficient testimony to win the case.

Lack of funds delays project on ill effects of drilling

A well-formulated and much-advertised plan by two Pennsylvania-based health companies to study the results of gas drilling is still in the initial stages as the companies look for grants to aid their project. A second group that has been looking for comparable solutions is focusing on the quality of the air, as the workers who have complained of health problems related to drilling will not answer questions about those problems.

Disclosure requirements and chemical injuries caused by fracking

In February, Pennsylvania legislators passed a bill that changed natural gas drilling law. Part of that new law, called Act 13, allows doctors to ask gas drilling companies what chemicals they are pumping into the ground. Drilling companies must provide this information to those doctors. This was a requirement created to allow doctors to treat patients who could be suffering from illnesses caused by exposure to chemicals.
