A ruling last month that overturned a portion of Pennsylvania's oil and gas law is drawing sharp criticism from the governor. Tom Corbett calls the ruling a terrible decision, saying the state Supreme Court took note of facts that were not in evidence in the lower court. He says the way the decision was written could have an impact far beyond the Marcellus shale industry. The state is asking the court to reconsider, arguing the court made a series of sweeping factual conclusions about the law's constitutionality.
