Michael Vennum, of counsel in the firm’s Pittsburgh office, was quoted in a Daily Environment Report story about a recent Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision on hydraulic fracturing. 

The story states:

“The Sept. 28 decision in Robinson Twp. v Commonwealth struck down four provisions of the state's 2012 Oil and Gas Act (Act 13) as unconstitutional.

‘These four provisions weren't really enforced,’ Michael Vennum, a member of the finance, energy and real estate group at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP in Pittsburgh, told Bloomberg BNA by phone Oct. 4. ‘Is it really a doomsday for the industry? No. But it does tell the industry that maybe the three new justices on the Supreme Court are not industry friendly.’”
