MANSFIELD — “At the heart of the case is whether the state, or the city, has power to regulate deep disposal wells.
Spon said he will file a motion next week asking Judge James S. Gwin to dismiss the case.
‘We expected it (the court action) and are fully prepared to fight against their assault upon our city,’ he said. ‘The battle has begun. My office is not going to compromise the safety of our drinking water and the safety of our citizens.’
Spon said the city plans to raise legal issues ‘never even before considered by a federal court in Ohio or the Supreme Court of Ohio.’”
