Several hundred mineral rights owners have turned out in Mansfield for a series of meetings offered by a Fort Worth-based law form looking to file mass lawsuits against Chesapeake Energy.
More than 500 showed up for the first 2 “town hall meetings” offered by the McDonald Law Firm in Mansfield on Monday evening. Another 175 or so came to a third session Tuesday night.
As a landowner in Fort Worth, Texas, Dan McDonald says he was given the runaround himself by Chesapeake and had to fight for the royalties owed to him. McDonald, who is not an oil & gas attorney, says he learned through is personal experiences in trying to get answers from the natural gas giant.
“What must it be like to be a royalty owner who’s not a lawyer who doesn’t understand the oil and gas business. I want to reach out and help those people.”
