American Energy Corp. v. Charles Datkuliak, et al.
Won declaratory judgment allowing our client to mine in excess of $4 million of coal over the objection of the gas well owner/operator. Successfully argued the case on appeal to the 7th Appellate District, and the Ohio Supreme Court refused to accept jurisdiction.
The case set multiple precedents for gas/oil well interference with coal rights. Despite the efforts of multiple oil/gas associations to have this decision reversed on appeal and in the Ohio Supreme Court, our client won at each stage of the procedure.
