For readers following the developments in hydraulic fracturing and the potential insurance coverage implications, we have been tracking litigation in New York involving zoning ordinances passed by the Town of Dryden and the Town of Middlefield, and most recently reported on the litigation in our Hydraulic Fracturing Digest in January 2014.  Readers may recall that an appellate court decision issued on May 3, 2013, had upheld the zoning ordinances prohibiting the exploration and production of natural gas and petroleum.  Today, the New York Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, affirmed the decisions.  We are reviewing the court’s decision and will provide further analysis in the Hydraulic Fracturing Digest.
