From Bricker & Eckler's Shale Task Force:
On May 29, 2013, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the federal district court’s decision in Lutz v. Chesapeake, allowing a class of landowners to pursue their claims against Chesapeake Appalachia for the underpayment of royalties.
The district court had dismissed the entire complaint in 2010 holding that the “plaintiffs’ breach of contract claim was time-barred by Ohio’s four-year statute of limitations.”
