A seismic testing company's request for injunctive relief and an expedited hearing regarding utilizing Cecil Township roads was denied Wednesday.
Washington County Judge Janet Moschetta Bell on Wednesday referred to the request by Dawson Geophysical—a Texas company with an office in Southpointe that filed the request Friday—"premature."
The judge drew a line through the scheduling order, handwriting on it "denied—premature."
"The court will revisit the need and propriety of the requested relief sought by (Dawson) following a decision of the Cecil Township Board of Supervisors on the pending application to conduct seismic testing on township roadways," the order read.
Dawson had made application to the township to conduct testing a day before it filed for court relief.
Cecil's solicitor has said the township will hold the hearing prior to the board's regular monthly meeting held in August.
