The decision issued by the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, the appeals court (second level) in PA. The decision overturns a portion of the Act 13 Marcellus Shale drilling law passed by the PA legislature in early 2012. The zoning portion of the law would have overruled any local zoning of oil and gas drilling with state guidelines. Seven towns and a few others sued to have the zoning provision nullified. The case will likely go to the PA Supreme Court in 2012.
