Chesapeake's use of the Texas law is among the latest examples of how the company executes what it calls a "land grab" -- an aggressive leasing strategy intended to lock up prospective drilling sites and lock out competitors.

"Chesapeake's use of the Texas law is among the latest examples of how the company executes what it calls a "land grab" -- an aggressive leasing strategy intended to lock up prospective drilling sites and lock out competitors." Similar sounding to the eminent domain suits TransCanada is filing in TX courts for the pipeline--sounds as if TX has no respect for individual properties rights unless it is corporate individuals asserting property rights in ways these laws were never envisioned to be used by the lawmakers who passed them........
