The Arkansas Supreme Court issued an opinion today in a case filed by The Holton Law Firm in St. Francis County, Arkansas. The case was filed in 2013 on behalf of all Arkansas residents who entered into a gas lease with Seeco before September 27, 2013. The allegation in the lawsuit is that Seeco fraudulently deducts expenses from the royalty owner's monthly checks.
The St. Francis County Circuit Court certified Stewmon v. Seeco as a class action and appointed lawyers from The Holton Law Firm as class counsel. Seeco appealed the decision of the Circuit Court to the Arkansas Supreme Court.
Today, the Arkansas Supreme Court issued an opinion affirming the decision of the Circuit Court. The Supreme Court's opinion says that the state court case of Stewmon v. Seeco is a proper class action and may proceed in Arkansas state court.
