Last October we reported that Energy Corporation of America (ECA) was being sued in federal court for underpaying royalties to landowners. The suit, Pollock et al. v. Energy Corporation of America, went to trial this week.
An eight-person jury agreed with the property owners following four days of testimony.
“The damage amount is in excess of $900,000,” said William Caroselli, an attorney for the property owners. “With simple interest, it should be well over $1 million.”
