March 15, 2019 | Topic: Criminal

HARRISBURG — Attorney General Josh Shapiro issued the following statement on today’s ruling by the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania:

“Today’s Commonwealth Court ruling is a victory that upholds our lawsuit against Chesapeake Energy Corporation and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. The court’s decision allows our action to move forward and address the misconduct by these companies against landowners in oil and gas leases under the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. I’m fighting for landowners who we charge have been ripped off, and my Office will continue to pursue this case on behalf of Northeast Pennsylvanians.
