In common folks language please.
This case has now been certified by the Court to proceed as a Class Action. Although I'm no attorney, I believe it means that it will now include anyone who signed a "Gross Royalty Lease" with the named defendants with the same language contained in the leases signed by those who filed the lawsuit.
I wonder if this will help folks HBP formerly with Viking who had transportation charges deducted when Atlas took over despite similar verbiage re deductions only for governmentally imposed taxes and fees.
Which law firm is handling the suit ?
I have a 20% gross royalty lease with Chesapeake on 12.5 acres in production in Guernsey County Ohio for almost 2.5 years now.
KWGD and Murray & Murray.
I wonder what happens to the suit considering the announcement of the sale of all Chesapeake's Utica assets ? Would Chesapeake be able to write liability for the suit into the deal ?
