Reconsideration Motion Fails in Middlefield

By on July 25, 2012

by James A. Pardo and Brandon H. Barnes

Cooperstown Holstein’s attempt to reverse the trial court’s decision upholding the Town of Middlefield’s zoning ban on hydraulic fracturing has failed.  The Cooperstown Holstein case is now heading for appeal to New York’s Appellate Division, Third Department, where it likely will be consolidated with the Town of Dryden action that was appealed earlier this year.  For more information about these cases, please see our earlier article, “Recent Court Decisions May Affect Hydraulic Fracturing in New York and Ohio.”
