Va suit settled over coalbed methane rights

•  Headline Legal News     updated  2011/06/24 11:21


Southwest Virginia landowners have reached a $3.4 million tentative settlement in a class-action lawsuit over coalbed methane rights.

The Bristol Herald Courier reports Wednesday's settlement would be split among 1,850 landowners.

The federal lawsuit alleged that Chesapeake Energy Corp. subsidiary Chesapeake Appalachia underpaid royalties to landowners for decades.

The settlement will be made final at a hearing Oct. 4.

Other similar class-action lawsuits are pending in federal court in southwest Virginia involving CNX Gas Co. and EQT Production Co.
