Cabot O&G Countersues Dimock Anti, Lawyers

It’s about time. Cabot Oil & Gas is tired of being sued, and slandered, by people like Dimock resident Ray Kemble and his ambulance-chasing lawyers. So Cabot has sued back–for $5 million. Kemble lives in Dimock Township, in Susquehanna County, PA. Kemble and other families claimed Cabot’s drilling in the area (nearly 10 years ago) caused problems with their water wells–a claim strongly refuted by Cabot. Cabot settled with most of the landowners, including Kemble. But a couple of Kemble’s neighbors did not settle. They sued and, in a sham trial, won a jury award of $4.2 million (see Dimock Jury Levies $4.25M Judgement Against Cabot in Dimock Case). However, a federal court later threw out the verdict and the $4.2 million judgement (see Fed Court Overturns $4.2M Dimock Judgement Against Cabot O&G). The judge said the Dimock lawsuit would have be re-tried. Our theory is that news of a potential new lawsuit and the previous OJ-like jury’s award of $4.2 million must have got old Ray a thinkin’…What if? So in April Ray and lawyers from two law firms launched another frivolous lawsuit against Cabot, litigation over something previously settled. And now Cabot has called them on it, filing a counter-lawsuit against Kemble, and against lawyers Charles Speer (Speer Law Firm) and Edward Ciarimboli and Clancy Boylan (Fellerman & Ciarimboli)…
