Utility Line Service Co. Awarded $24 Million!!

Date: April 28, 2014

Some time ago we blogged about Utility Line Services and the perils of contracting work in the Marcellus shale Region.  As we reported, ULS was literally forced to the verge of bankruptcy due to nonpayment of money owed for construction of a 17 mile gathering pipeline in Lycoming County.  ULS had been hired by PVR Marcellus Gathering Company.  Although the work was completed, PVR refused to pay ULS over $16 million.

ULS hired Pepper Hamilton to represent its interest in a lawsuit filed in Southeast Pennsylvania.  The Pepper Trial Team included my old classmate and outstanding trial lawyer Attorney Richard Foltz.  Following a two week trial a jury found 100% in favor of ULS and awarded $24 million.  Post trial motions for additional interest and costs will be filed.  It is expected that PVR will file an appeal.
