Michigan energy company's case at Supreme Court

ALAIEDON TOWNSHIP (AP) — A Lansing-area energy company is involved in a U.S. Supreme Court that considers the requirements for transferring class-action lawsuits from state courts to federal courts.

The justices on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from Dart Cherokee Basin Operating Co. It’s a unit of Dart Oil & Gas Corp., based near Mason in Ingham County’s Alaiedon Township.

Dart Oil & Gas says it should be allowed to move a class-action case from Kansas state court to federal court. Federal law allows such transfers in cases involving more than $5 million.

Dart Oil & Gas says on its website that it operates 151 wells in Michigan and has a majority interest in and operates more than 700 wells in the Cherokee Basin in Kansas.
