Another town ban on natural gas drilling is being challenged in court. Just one day before the Town of Dryden was sued by driller Anschutz, the Town of Middlefield in Otsego County was the subject of a lawsuit.
Jennifer Huntington, a dairy farm, brought the suit against the town board on September 15. She claims that the town's ban on gas drilling violates New York state law.
The town's law - and the argument against - it are nearly identical to the Dryden case.
