I have to wonder what Range Resources’ shareholders are thinking right now. But the Range shareholders have also experienced their bullying.
It seems their reputation for mistreating children, misusing the legal system and being the biggest bullies in the neighborhood is not paying off for them. Their misdeeds have made international news.
As I well know because my year in 2012 was peppered liberally with intimidation attempts from Range Resources, intimidation does not come cheap.
ON THEIR SIDE: They had six or seven attorneys who gave me the most elaborate, lingering evil eye I have ever received in the doorway outside the courtroom. I’m guessing that was part of their arsenal of intimidation. They also had several additional people in tow.
ON MY SIDE: J. Scott McLain and me
Gagging little children has turned into a PR nightmare for Range. It seems they have stepped in the Karmic DoodyGate motherlode and I suspect their attorney is not the only one who will wind up under the bus. Watch for the headlights because that bus might be coming your way.

Another Alberta Neighbour says
Former Pa. judge hired by Parnell administration OK’d lifetime gag order on children in 2011 fracking lawsuit by Katie Toupe, August 5, 2013, Anchorage Daily News
Quite the summary:
Paul Pozonsky, the former Pennsylvania judge briefly hired by the Parnell administration as an Alaska workers’ compensation hearing officer even though he was under investigation for stealing cocaine from Pennsylvania trial evidence envelopes, signed off on a fracking lawsuit settlement in 2011 that may have included the first lifetime gag order ever intended to be enforced on minor children. When the plaintiffs’ attorney questioned whether that aspect of the settlement was even constitutional, a newly released transcript shows, Pozonsky replied simply, “That’s a law school question, I guess.”
I’ve blogged about Ponzonsky quite a bit. I wonder if he knows activist, former judge Loftin.
Funny, this is isn’t on the Range Resources Newsroom page. Don’t they believe in candor with the investors?
Range Sucks! Big time. Makes you wonder if they have connections in Booger County, Tx.?
Let us not forget that “Good Neighbors” Range Resources also admitted to and encouraged the use of “Military Psyops” in communities where people don’t want their toxic crap. It’s becoming more evident that this industry cares nothing about the people they spew their lies and poison on. Go back and listen to the same Range players on NPR “This American Life” podcast June 2011 called “Game Changer” you’ll be able to hear how they really operate. Good Neighbors……NOT.
Just doing a little thinking here, so thought I would share a link. After all, you never know when someone is going to be dumb and put something out there in their own name. I couldn’t find where Pozonsky contributed to any elections, probably has some aliases. These guys are trash, just curious how they buy their way into their office! Here is the link for campaign contributions. See who is buying which office. http://www.fec.gov/finance/disclosure/advindsea.shtml
