IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF PAWNEE COUNTY STATE OF OKLAHOMA
If You Suffered Damage From The Earthquakes With Epicenters Within 50 Miles Of Pawnee, Oklahoma Between November 15, 2014 And the Effective Date, You May Be Eligible For A Payment From A Class Action Settlement.
A State Court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
An $850,000 settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether Eagle Road Oil, LLC (“Eagle Road”) operated wastewater disposal wells that allegedly contributed to causing the earthquakes near Pawnee, Oklahoma and occurring within the Settlement Class Period. The Settlement resolves any and all claims alleged to arise against Eagle Road from earthquakes between November 15, 2014, and the Effective Date with epicenters within a 50-mile radius of Pawnee, Oklahoma, including but not limited to the 5.8m earthquake near Pawnee on September 3, 2016, and the 5.0m earthquake near Cushing on November 6, 2016. Eagle Road disputes and denies all of the allegations made by the Plaintiff. The lawsuit will continue against the remaining defendants, Cummings Oil Company, Territory Resources, LLC, and EnerVest Operating, L.L.C. (hereafter “Non-Settling Defendants”).
You may be eligible to participate in the proposed Settlement, if it is finally approved, if you owned or have had an interest in residential or commercial real estate properties within the borders of Oklahoma between November 15, 2014 and the Effective Date and suffered earthquake damages from earthquakes with epicenters within a 50-mile radius of Pawnee, Oklahoma.
The Settlement will provide benefits to those who qualify. You will need to file a Claim Form to receive benefits from the Settlement.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act. Read the Notice carefully.
