Heidi Gorovitz Robertson, the Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law, has published a new article on Crain’s Cleveland Business, entitled “Ohio law has some gaps to fill when it comes to how landowners are forced into shale drilling arrangements.”

In this article, available here, Professor Robertson discusses the recent Ohio Oil and Gas Commission decision known as the “Teeter decision.”  According to Professor Robertson, the Teeter decision ” highlights the lack of statutory clarity in Ohio’s oil and gas statute regarding when the unitization section would apply, as opposed to the mandatory pooling section.”  As Professor Robertson’s article informs us, Teeter has appealed this decision to the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, which will likely start looking at this case in December and early January.
