2. "Munley rejected Stockport’s argument

that the parties could not have intended to ban shale gas production because they didn’t even consider it as a possibility when they executed the easement in 2002."

I'm no lawyer, but I'm assuming that's why the prohibition on 'industrial or commercial uses of any kind' as written in the easement is so broad - so that it protects against harmful technologies yet unknown.

I'm sure the frackers will keep trying. It's not as if they don't have enough money to keep the fight going.
