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.
Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C. and Cefalo and Associates have announced that a partial settlement with a second set of defendants has been reached in the Luzerne County juvenile-court civil litigation. The settlement, which must receive court approval, is between defendants PA Child Care, LLC, Western PA Child Care, LLC, and Mid-Atlantic Youth Services Corp., and counsel representing the plaintiff juveniles and parents of juveniles who appeared before former juvenile court judge Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. The civil lawsuit is continuing against, among others, the former judges.
