IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF PAWNEE COUNTY STATE OF OKLAHOMA
If You Suffered Damage From The Earthquakes in Oklahoma Between April 16, 2013, And the Effective Date, You May Be Eligible For A Payment From A Class Action Settlement.
A State Court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A $900,000.00 settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether EnerVest Operating, L.L.C. (“EnerVest”) operated wastewater disposal wells that allegedly contributed to causing the earthquakes near Pawnee, Oklahoma and also in other areas in Oklahoma occurring within the Settlement Class Period. The Settlement resolves any and all claims against EnerVest alleged to arise from earthquakes that occurred between April 16, 2013, and the Effective Date with epicenters within the State of Oklahoma, including but not limited to the 5.8m earthquake near Pawnee on September 3, 2016. EnerVest disputes and denies all of the allegations made by the Plaintiff.
You may be eligible to participate in the proposed Settlement, if it is finally approved, if you owned or have had an interest in residential or commercial real estate properties within the borders of Oklahoma between April 16, 2013, through the Effective Date and suffered earthquake damages from earthquakes near Pawnee, Oklahoma or other seismicity in other areas of Oklahoma.
The Settlement will provide benefits to those who qualify. You will need to file a Claim Form to receive benefits from the Settlement.
