What it still means is that the court has 6 business republicans and Paul Pfieffer. They managed a few years back to take away their Ballot party affliation so that people would not see how anti citizen that they are.

jerry,

Justice Pfieffer agreed with the majority that the Beck Leases were valid.

That was pro citizen?

I thought it said that he dissented as per Clagus,I guess that I was wrong, One thing though I am glad that I told ole Becky that I wasn't interested years back.

jerry,

He did dissent with regard to the Clagus issue.

He agreed with the issue of the leases being valid.

Finally it all reads to me like the lessors attempting to escape Utica Sub-Standard Leases and the Court ruling against them.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken.

Just my read on it.

Good Luck to all of us.
