Heidi Gorovitz Robertson, Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law, has published an article with Crain’s Cleveland Business, entitled “Ohio cities may have a new way to control oil and gas drilling within their borders.”  The article, available here, discusses a recent Franklin County Court of Common Pleas decision to uphold an earlier decision by the Ohio Oil and Gas Commission, which had voided an order allowing Cutter Oil to drill oil within North Royalton city limits.  In light of the Franklin County Court decision, the city of North Royalton, as well as other Ohio municipalities, may have a stronger voice regarding drilling permits and operations taking place within such municipalities’ geographic limits.  Professor Robertson had already published multiple articles and opinion pieces with Crain’s Cleveland Business on similar topics.
