SLT Holdings, LLC v. Mitch-Well Energy, Inc.

In SLT Holdings, LLC v. Mitch-Well Energy, Inc., the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reviewed the trial court’s grant of partial summary judgment in favor of Appellees in their complaint in equity against Appellant on the grounds of abandonment. The Court reversed, holding that because Appellees had available to them a full and adequate remedy at law, through contract principles generally applicable to oil and gas leases, and through the specific provisions of the subject leases, the trial court erred when it provided recourse through application of the equitable doctrine of abandonment.
