Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 3 NFP memorandum decision(s))

For publication opinions today (1):

In Allen Gray Limited Partnership IV v. Bishop Mumford, Christopher Mumford, Elizabeth B. Mumford, Richardson S. Mumford, Thomas F. Mumford, Jr., and William M. Mumford, an 8-page opinion, Judge May writes:

Allen Gray Limited Partnership IV (“Allen Gray”) appeals a summary judgment for Bishop, Christopher, Elizabeth, Richardson, Thomas, and William Mumford, (collectively, “Mumford”), who sold mineral rights to Allen Gray but reserved the rights to oil and gas from certain producing wells. As the reservations were for a defined area and did not limit Mumford to oil and gas produced under existing permits, we affirm. * * *

The trial court correctly determined the reservation applied to the surface area of the “drilling unit,” and did not restrict Mumford from making the reserved wells deeper. Summary judgment for Mumford therefore was not error, and we affirm.
