Town of Dish files lawsuit against six gas companies
by CRAIG CIVALE
March 1, 2011
The suit claims drilling has created “significant public health concerns…” and “deprivation of the enjoyment of their property…” which continue to lose value.
“Frankly, we don’t have a choice, we had to do this, we don’t have an option,” said Charles Tillman, Dish Mayor.

Good luck mayor and the town of Dish! We're all on your side. But, we know about the crooked and oil soaked Texas Court system, it's bad!!

It would be nice if you had a linkmto the PDF of the suit as filed.
I haven't seen one yet.
These folks don't have a chance. The lawyers will make out like bandits. They should keep their money and move.
People how can you be so blind. We have a crisis in our economy caused by locking up our own natural resources from development. The, 'not in my back yard' (nimbys) do gooders, who understand little about the need for energy to produce the Cars, Homes, plastics, etc. they all enjoy. Couple this with those in the world that would like to see our country bankrupted, Who fund protesters, develope fraudulent Science Reports,(Global warming comes to mind), File Law Suits to shut down development. Sit down and be quiet, Natural gas is the cleanest burning fuel in the world!!
Here's how you can help the economy: Lots of people in DISH have homes that they can't sell because no one will buy them. Some people have abandoned their homes because they are tired of their children being sick.
Why not buy one of those homes in DISH? That would help the economy and then you can show us how wonderful it is living next to natural gas development.
sue the crap out of them.
We are all sick from this mess

Where is there a cleaner, safer place to raise our childre? One that is close enough to a populated area so that we can still work and attend good schools, medical care etc………..
