A few weeks back MDN told you Chesapeake Energy had beaten a lawsuit by a group of Ohio landowners who claimed Chessy had cheated them out of a collective $30 million in royalties (see Chesapeake Energy & Total Beat Class Action Royalty Lawsuit in OH). A second lawsuit by a different set of Ohio landowners in the same court was recently decided. This second lawsuit has gone in Chesapeake’s favor as well. The second lawsuit claimed Chesapeake had fraudulently concealed information on royalty statements dating back to 1993 (for conventional wells). The court found otherwise. Strike two for Ohio landowners.
