Settlement made public in gas drilling lawsuit

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — A legal settlement in a dispute over natural gas drilling in Pennsylvania has been made public after two years.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday the settlement between Stephanie and Chris Hallowich and Range Resources, MarkWest Energy and Williams Gas/Laurel Mountain Midstream is now available.

The couple had claimed drilling and other activity on a neighboring property had made their suburban Pittsburgh home virtually unsellable. The Post-Gazette and the Washington Observer-Reporter challenged a previous court ruling that sealed the settlement.

The documents show the couple agreed there was no medical evidence drilling harmed their health or their children’s health.

The couple received $595,000. Their lawyers got $150,000. The agreement prohibits the couple and their children from criticizing gas drilling operations.

Range says it never intended for the gag order to apply to the children.
