Remember the little kid gagging frackers? The frackers filed an appeal to get their dirty secrets covered back up but the higher court has quashed the appeal.
Superior Court quashes appeal in Hallowich case
By Barbara Miller
The two-sentence order from the appellate court Tuesday granted requests by the Observer-Reporter and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to quash the appeal and dismissed as moot the scheduling of oral argument and the filing of briefs by the newspapers.
“We are pleased with the outcome of the case,” said Liz Rogers, Observer-Reporter editor. “Though it was a long and protracted affair, we were steadfast in our resolve that the public was entitled to the details of the settlement.”
Meanwhile the Hallowich children are still gagged.
