Court Grants Stay in MarkWest Injunction Case

A Commonwealth Court judge this week granted the request filed by the company, which wants to build a natural gas compressor station in Cecil Township.

A Commonwealth Court judge on this week granted a stay of proceedings requested by MarkWest, which had sought an injunction against so it could proceed with plans to build a natural gas compressor station on Coleman Road.

An attorney for the company asked that the stay be granted until the outcome of an appeal on a court ruling that struck down the zoning portions of Act 13 is hashed out in the state Supreme Court.

It was granted Wednesday.

The company had asked for expedited consideration of the matter, because a court hearing had been scheduled for argument on the matter Aug. 15.

"Given MarkWest's pending motion for preliminary injunctive relief, currently scheduled for hearing on Aug 15, and the township's pending preliminary objections, MarkWest respectfully asks the court to give expedited consideration to this application for a stay of action," an attorney for the company.

The document continued: "Counsel for MarkWest has conferred with council for the township regarding the relief requested by this application. Counsel for township does not object to the relief requested."

MarkWest filed the injunction this past June. For more information,
