OH Supreme Court Finally Rules on Dormant Mineral Act
Source: Marcellus Drilling News
MDN has been reporting on the Ohio Dormant Mineral Act (DMA) for years. 
In a nutshell, there are two DMAs in Ohio-one passed in 1989 that went into effect in 1992, and another in 2006 which added certain additional procedural requirements to the 1989 version. The DMA in its various versions provides for mineral rights that had previously been separated from surface rights to transfer back to the surface owner under certain conditions. The problem, for drillers and for landowners in Ohio, is in knowing which set of DMA rules to use (1989 or 2006) in determining who owns the mineral rights. A number of DMA cases went before the Ohio Supreme Court. Source:
