This is a remarkable outcome. I do hope it provides encouragement for many others throughout the US, as the jury sided with the two families opposing the big oil company and their high-power law firm.

Thanks for posting this wonderful news. Perhaps fracking war can be won in the civil courts. I also hope our Federal government bans fracking. Unfortunately the bribes into Washington are taking its toll on our clean water.

Representatives for Cabot denied that the Ely and Hubert families had proven their case sufficiently despite the jury's verdict and continued to assert that the company had acted prudently in its operations on Carter Road. “Cabot is surprised at the jury's verdict...."
What, can anyone be surprised by this blather?
THIS is what one form of justice looks like!
