Landowners still have not been paid. Attorneys from New Orleans attended the meeting last week at the NARO meeting with MRD/Range people at the library. They have been asking landowners if they received their payments and all the deductions on their checks.
Gerald, royalty deductions appear to be the real issue regarding MRD's relationship with its lessors as opposed to the issues raised in the CLB suit.
The CLB suit is a bit of a mess in its pleading and the case (and its 12 b 6) doesn't get at some of the actual issues that have been suggested regarding MRD (as Skip stated too). I'm hopeful that the exchanges in future matters will get to those issues.
