Judge Dismisses Fracking Lawsuit Against Oil Company

A lawsuit filed against an oil company by a South Texas family was dismissed after no definitive proof of causation was established. The family claimed the company had created a nuisance out of their home, which kept them from enjoying it, all the while burdening them with health issues.

The family accused the defendant’s wells and production facilities of causing issues with their health, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Rashes
  • Bone pain
  • Numbness
  • Nose bleeds
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Bronchitis

The judge presiding over the case dismissed the family’s lawsuit, stating that something unrelated to the company’s actions could have caused these problems. The judge then added that the family did not have enough medical and scientific data to prove their sickness had occurred as a result of oil-related operations.
