SOUTHFIELD — Judge Michael Warren, of the Oakland County Circuit Court, issued an opinion July 11 dismissing the city’s case opposing oil and gas drilling within the city.
The subject of oil and gas drilling in the city has been a hot topic this year. In March, Warren dismissed a lawsuit filed by the city of Southfield against the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for approving a permit application for Jordan Development Co. to drill an exploratory well at Word of Faith International Church, 20000 W. Nine Mile Road.
