The Campaign For DA


Lawsuit News

A Star-Telegram reporter just tweeted "Wise County family speaking to press on lawsuit filed today, say gas drilling made them sick." He said there will be a story on the paper's website later today and that some television news stations were there as well.

Don't know who they are, who the lawyer is, or the merits of the case, but they did a good job on the publicity side.

With all this talk about gas well pollution, people forget about a Wise County case where a jury awarded $200,000,000 in punitive damages alone for land contamination in 1997. It was reversed on appeal on statute of limitations grounds.

Edit: The story about the lawsuit is up.
