Fracking Industry Asks NY Court to Throw Out Gas Drilling Bans

By Jon Campbell

Attorneys for Norse Energy and an Otsego County farmer made the filing late Friday, asking the seven-member Court of Appeals to take on the cases of a pair of upstate towns that changed their zoning laws in 2011 to ban hydrofracking and gas drilling.
