Litigation Alert - March 2011


In this issue: Message From The Chair; RMF Successfully Opposes Joint-Venture Allegations; On The Horizon: The Battle Over Hydrofracking; and Practice Pointer: Find Your Own ”Headless Body Found in Topless Bar”.

Welcome to the March 2011 Litigation Alert, where we address one issue anchored in wellworn jurisprudence and another where the legal battles are almost certain to create new precedent.

In the first article, we discuss a recent RMF success relating to the elements necessary to create a joint venture. The second article deals with the collision between the public’s desire for accessible energy and the potential for serious environmental hazard resulting from hydrofracking, an innovative new drilling technique.

Please see full alert below for more information.
