Fort Collins: Judge Overturns Fracking Moratorium

On August 8 Judicial District Judge Gregory Lammons ruled to overturn the fracking moratorium approved by Fort Collins voters last November. The Colorado Oil and Gas Association challenged the results of that election. The judge said that the moratorium violated a May 2013 operator agreement signed by the City, which allowed former Fort Collins Field owner Prospect Energy, LLC to frack wells in city limits. City officials will have seven weeks from the official filing to decide if it plans to appeal the court’s decision, said Interim City Attorney Carrie Daggett.
