jimbo999 I hold no grudges with the DP family

Just cuz we argue and get pissed off doesn't mean we don't care.
We do care.

OK. About the ruling:
I don't know but I'll try to find out.
I know that the judge specifically mentioned the fact that the state can't override local zoning codes. That was the main issue.

Other issues
The court also found another section of Act 13 which allowed the Department of Environmental Protection to grant waivers for setback requirements from water sources to be unconstitutional.
The justices also weighed in on the so-called “doctor gag rule” of Act 13. The language in the law has some medical professionals concerned they could get in trouble for disclosing chemical trade secrets associated with gas drilling. The high court says that legal challenge can continue and it was sent it back to the lower Commonwealth Court.
