Zack Space, a principal with Vorys Advisors, was quoted in an Energy Wire story titled “Industry, Enviros Dissect Mess of Litigation as Year Closes.”   The article highlighted pending oil and gas litigation in states across the U.S.  Space spoke about a pending Ohio Supreme Court case.

The story states:

“Meanwhile, stakeholders are anxiously awaiting decisions from the U.S. District Court for New Mexico on a fracking ban in Mora County, and from the Ohio Supreme Court on a ban in Munroe Falls. Former Rep. Zack Space (D-Ohio), who now consults on energy policy, said he was optimistic that the Ohio decision, when handed down, would provide clarity on the issue of local governments' authority over fracking.

‘I don't know what the Supreme Court is going to do, but I suspect it will uphold [state] law,’ he told EnergyWire. ‘I think there is a sincere and significant statewide interest in ensuring the consistency and regularity statewide when it comes to regulating this industry.’”
