N.Y.’s top court agrees to hear fracking ban cases | Democrat and Chronicle | democratandchronicle.com

ALBANY — New York’s top court will hear arguments in a pair of cases that challenge whether towns, cities and villages can ban natural-gas drilling within their borders, the court announced Thursday.
The state Court of Appeals agreed to take on cases against the towns of Dryden, Tompkins County, and Middlefield, Otsego County, despite unanimous rulings upholding those towns’ drilling ban by a mid-level appeals court earlier this year.
