… 

Charlie Speer, the trial lawyer trying to cultivate a new line of profitable litigation to replace lucrative pig farm lawsuits, isn’t doing so well in court.

Ray Kemble’s legal team, which is on the hook for bringing an already settled case back to court and acting as if there never was one, isn’t faring so well in court. Charlie Speer, the Midwest trial lawyer who’s looking to replace his pig suing business with rig suing business raised numerous objections to Cabot’s lawsuit against him and the team, but all but one (which Cabot voluntarily withdrew before the ruling) have been been overruled by the court.

Vera Scroggins; Above the Law, Or Just In Contempt of It?

… 

Vera Scroggins, like so many fractivists, imagines she’s above the law and can act with impunity toward others, but Cabot Oil & Gas is taking her to task.

Vera Scroggins loves the limelight and lives for it, imagining herself as some sort of heroine for defying the rights of others. Her foul-mouthed antics belie the granny activist schtick she markets to the media and she wears her deliberate defiance of authority as a badge of honor among the gallery of rogues with whom she associates. She “plays the martyr” well to a point but, unlike a lot of industry folks who prefer attempting to wish her away, Cabot Oil & Gas has been directly challenging her and showing the world who she really is.

The last time Cabot took Vera to court she exposed herself at court as a very conniving sarcastic individual, which is never a smart thing to do with judges, and she got a $1,000 trespass fine as a result, along with a stern judicial lecture. Now, she’s defied the court itself and Cabot is asking for a bigger penalty. Good!

… 

The Cabot Oil & Gas lawsuit against a gang of “pigs to rigs” trial lawyers and their Dimock junkyard plaintiff Ray Kemble advanced yesterday with hilarity.

Act II in the “Pig to Rigs” lawsuit took place yesterday inn Montrose at the Susquehanna County Courthouse. Act I took place, of course, when Cabot Oil & Gas filed a lawsuit against seedy pig farm suer Charlie Speer, his Luzerne County trial lawyer associates and Ray Kemble, the Dimock junkyard plaintiff fractivists have resorted to using as their poster child, despite his complete lack of credence.

DRBC Torment Won’t Stop Me from Defending the People of the Delaware

Otdoor Life - Shaughnessy

Bill Shaughnessy
Wayne County, Pennsylvania Landowner

 

Bill Shaughnessy fights for what he learned from his Dad and Mom and the people of the Delaware against the DRBC tyrants and their land use power grab.

Its been seven years almost to the day that I was sitting with my dying father, his family at his side, going over the lease we had just received from Hess through an alliance of neighbors known as NWPOA (Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance). It was not exactly a time of celebration, but my father took solace in knowing the 228 acres he and my mom had worked so hard to retain and improve for over the years was not only going to stay in the family indefinitely, but would shape the rest of the lives of his children, grandchildren, and beyond.

The property in Damascus Township we grew up on, learned to care for, respect, and protect would be able to give back for generations, yet still remain almost completely intact. He was aware of what was involved with hydraulic fracturing and studied the effects and leases from multiple gas companies before signing. He knew long after he was gone the future of our family would be changed forever. What my parents didn’t know was the battle that lay ahead with a relatively unknown entity at the time known as the DRBC.

… 

An overdue lawsuit by Cabot Oil & Gas has been filed against a gang of “pigs to rigs” trial lawyers and their Dimock junkyard plaintiff Ray Kemble.

I have joyous news for all our readers. Cabot Oil & Gas has fired a shot against the seedy trial lawyers and even seedier hustlers trying to earn fame and money with jugs of brown water and filthy accusations surrounding Dimock. Cabot has filed a lawsuit against pig farm suer Charlie Speer, his Luzerne County trial lawyer associates and Ray Kemble, the Dimock junkyard plaintiff fractivists have descended to using as an example despite his complete lack of credibility on virtually anything.

It’s a $5 million lawsuit enjoyable to read for entertainment but, more than that and the obvious quest for justice, this is a glorious opportunity to expose some of the special interests behind fractivism. Discovery is going to be a nightmare for Speer, Kemble and allies.

Another Dimock ATSDR Study? You’ve Got to be Kidding!

… 

It’s back! There is another Dimock ATSDR study underway, proving how easy it is for fractivists to manipulate government into the ridiculous and the corrupt.

How many times will they get away with it? There’s now yet another Dimock ATSDR study of water wells taking place at the request of fractivists. Readers of this blog will recall this follows another Dimock ATSDR study conducted in 2012, when the EPA came to town to test wells and had the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) analyze the results.

That study was instigated by Josh Fox and now forgotten people such as Craig Sautner who bombarded the EPA with complaints until they relented and did a study proving just how ridiculous the fractivist claims really were, at which point Sautner went apoplectic, turned on the agency and self-destructed in an epic blazing flameout. (Must watch video here.)

Now, it’s “déjà vu all over again.”

Fracking Brings Relief for Struggling Farmers

Struggling farmers in the Marcellus region are often a thing of the past because of fracking. Natural gas has reinvigorated communities and saved countless farms.

Farming has always been a labor of love and profits were not necessarily the outcome. In recent years, as the economy took a downturn, farmers were especially hit hard. Milk prices were at an all-time low and gas was at an all-time high. Many faced more expenses than income.

When fracking came along, struggling farmers, with their vast amounts of land, had a perfect opportunity to change things and get some much needed income. Essentially saving their farms from bankruptcy.

Shale Rejuvenating Small Town America One Play at a Time

Managing Editor, Oilman Magazine

… 

The shale play is breathing new life into Small Town America bringing along jobs, investments in the local community and a new sense of pride.

The oil industry has always had a stunning fascination with numbers.

To the casual observer, it may at times seem that the oil and gas industry’s love of numbers supersedes all else. When most newsworthy topics about the industry find their way to print, there’s invariably a number somewhere leading the story, inexorably answering the key questions: “how much?” or “how many?”

Earlier this month we announced something pretty incredible: since beginning operations in Susquehanna County, Cabot has paid its landowners more than $1 billion in royalties. And that figure doesn’t even include the nearly $500 million paid out in signing bonuses for their leases.
