Ohio Supreme Court Schedules Oral Argument in Dormant Mineral Act Cases

The Ohio Supreme Court scheduled oral argument in two significant Dormant Mineral Act (“DMA”) cases. Oral argument has been scheduled on Corban v. Chesapeake Exploration, L.L.C. for May 6, 2015. As previously reported on ShaleEnergyLawBlog, the Corban case is likely to decide whether the 1989 or 2006 version of the DMA applies to current cases.

The Court also scheduled oral arguments in Walker v. Shondrick-Nau for June 23, 2015. The Walker case is set to decide similar issues concerning application of the DMA.
