We thought you might be interested in these two recent trial court decisions addressing the effectiveness of the 1989 version of Ohio’s Dormant Mineral Act – M&H Partnership v. Hines, Harrison C.P.

No. 2012-110 (January 13, 2014).  To find out how they come out, you’ll have to read them (don’t worry, they’re relatively short …).
