Need Help with a Legal Issue in Ohio

My family has a 200 acre interest in a 2000+ acre pooled venture that has been on hold because the largest property holder within the group is in a dispute with a small area mineral rights holder. This property holder is basically trying to use the law take the mineral rights from this small holder. So far the mineral rights holder has held on in court, but the property holder refuses to deal and has a "all or nothing" stance. It looks like the mineral rights holder can’t or won’t sign on to the protected lease offer while the property holder fights on. It seems that our legal adviser is tied too close to this property holder to get the whole truth. The land company states they are ready to go .Being as I don’t wish to ruffle feathers, I really can’t go into much more detail. What can those of us in this pooling, who are tired of the delays, do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ron Hale,

 Thank you for your advice, it is greatly appreciated. I see you take the conservative course. My major concern at this exact moment is this ongoing dispute with the 100 acre mineral rights holder and the largest property owner in our pooling. In and around this area people have made investments you can see and are ready to go. Then there is our group,.....waiting, and waiting,.....and waiting. The land company has basically said it isn't negotiating as they should because this dispute is in play. Is there anything, those of us forced into this, can do?

you may get some responses/more views if you post on the general discussion board as opposed to a blog.
