LITTLE ROCK, Ark., June 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Citizens of Oklahoma who owned a residential or commercial property in Lincoln, Payne, Logan, Oklahoma, Cleveland, Pottawatomy, Seminole, Okfuskee, or Brook Counties in Oklahoma between November 5thand 8. 2011, and which properties or properties suffered earthquake damage from nearby earthquakes Prague, Oklahoma on November 5th6th, 8th and 8th 2011 are members of a class that is only approved for testing certain facts. One of the specific questions is whether New Dominion, LLC’s sanitation facilities caused the earthquakes.
A class action lawsuit was filed in Lincoln County claims earthquakes were caused by nearby oil and gas sanitation wells Prague, Oklahoma, on November 5th6th and 8th 2011. In particular, the case alleges that New Dominion, LLC (“New Dominion”) and Spess Oil Company, among others, were responsible for these earthquakes, and claims that the earthquakes are owned in Lincoln, Payne, Logan, Oklahoma, Cleveland, Pottawatomy, Seminole, Okfuskee, or Brook Counties. New Dominion denies its operations caused these earthquakes.
District Judge Lori Walkley, on behalf of the District Court of Lincoln County, is the presiding judge. Judge Walkley has made no decisions as to the merits of this case. It is planned to begin a study on the specific subjects for which the class has been certified October 18, 2021, in the courtroom of Judge Walkley in District Court of Cleveland County, in the Norman, Oklahoma.
The process on each subject does not result in damages for any member of the class or provides for punitive damages. Instead, it should be determined in the class action, among other things, whether the earthquake in the area Prague in 2011 were caused or contributed by New Dominion. There is no money available and no guarantee that it will ever be.
If you are included in the lawsuit, you have the following statutory rights: (a) If you are included in the lawsuit and wish to remain a member of the class action, you do not need to take any action; (b) You can exclude yourself from being a member of the class, but must do so up to and including August 27, 2021;; (c) if you do not exclude yourself as a member of the class by August 27, 2021, then any final decisions the court makes in the lawsuit on the specific matters confirmed by the court for the class will be binding on you; and (d) if you do not wish to exclude yourself as a member of the class action, you may appear in the case either by yourself or through an attorney of your choice at your own expense.
