On September 25, 2012, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals heard Martin et al. v. Hamblet, a certified question revolving around a surface owner’s right to appeal the issuance of a well work permit based on a per curiam opinion, State ex Rel. Lovejoy v. Callaghan, 576 S.E.2d 246, 213 W.Va. 1 (2002).  Richard Gottlieb, who heads LGCR's natural gas practice, argued the case on behalf of the natural gas producer, EQT.
