Are Local Zoning and Drilling Ordinances in Conflict with the State Oil and Gas Drilling Law?
State ex rel. City of Munroe Falls, et al. v. Beck Energy Corporation, et al., Case no. 2013-0465
Ninth District Court of Appeals (Summit County)
Do state laws concerning oil and gas drilling (R.C. Chapter 1509) deprive municipalities of their local home-rule authority under the Ohio Constitution to enact and enforce zoning laws?
Do municipal ordinances requiring that an oil and gas driller with a state permit submit information to a local government to protect the residents' interests conflict with the state's oil and gas drilling law?
