Suit filed over lease with Chesapeake

LISBON – A group known as the Kaleidoscope Project Inc., Fredricktown Clarkson Road, Negley, filed a lawsuit this week against Chesapeake Exploration LLC.

Kaleidoscope is seeking to have the oil and gas lease declared expired. Additionally, the lawsuit seeks to have a recorded notice of extension of that lease declared to be null and void. It contends that lease extension made false and slanderous comments about the title to Kaleidoscope’s property. According to court documents, Kaleidoscope is the owner of 97.584 acres of land some in Middleton Township and some in St. Clair Township.
