Oil & Gas Company Answers Class Action Petition for Seismic Damage Claims in Oklahoma

On September 21, 2015, New Dominion LLC filed an answer to the class action petition brought by Jennifer Lin Cooper, an Oklahoma resident, against the company.

On February 10, 2015, Jennifer Lin Copper filed a lawsuit against New Dominion LLC and Spess Oil Company operating disposal wells in Lincoln County along with 25 unnamed companies. They sought class action status to include people in Lincoln County and eight surrounding counties claiming property and market loss damages due to recent earthquake activities. Their claims emphasized the connection between wastewater disposal wells and seismic activity.

In its answer and counterclaim, New Dominion LLC alleged that [w]ithout knowing the identity of the John Doe Defendants, [they are] unable to respond to allegations concerning their operations.”

Further information on this case is available at docket no. CJ-2015-0024 in the Lincoln County District Court.
