    The Ohio Marketable Title Act: Landowner’s last hope or outdated law?

    While the Ohio Supreme Court’s decision in Corban v. Chesapeake eliminated one mechanism whereby surface owners could reunite the mineral and surface estates, surface owners and their attorneys have since been searching for alternative means to extinguish severed oil and gas interests. One of the potential remedies is the Ohio Marketable Title Act. However, given the broad nature of the OMTA, questions remain unanswered.  In light of the enactment of the Dormant Mineral Act in 1989, is the OMTA still valid remedy? If so, what are the potential issues with its application?

    Presenters: Craig Sweeney & Aaron Bruggeman
