Multi-Million Dollar Breach of Contract Judgment Affirmed
On October 22, 2014 the Superior Court of Pennsylvania affirmed a summary judgment award awarded FSC’s client XTO Energy Inc against Dominion Field Services, Inc. resulting in a breach of contract award to XTO worth approximately $4.5 million. The case involved an extremely complicated factual history and esoteric aspects of how natural gas is traded. The dispute required analysis and interpretation of the factual and legal relationships between a gas producer, buyer and gathering system operator, as reflected in the appellate court’s 40 page opinion, a copy of which is attached here. Mike Cooke handled the appeal and trial court proceedings on the Complex Litigation Docket of the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas. FSC’s Todd Blumenfeld and Glenn Orman assisted.
