Texas couple awarded $3M in fracking-damage suit

[Updated at 5 p.m. to add more detailed story—see below: “In landmark ruling…]

A jury in Dallas has
awarded Bob and Lisa Parr of Decatur nearly $3 million for damages resulting from a nearby fracking operation.
The Parrs sued Aruba Petroleum in 2011 for fracking operations that "fouled the family’s 40-acre ranch property, their home and quality of life, sickened them and their pets and livestock," according to the plaintiffs' law firm Matthews and Associates.
The April 22 verdict included $275,000 for the Parr’s property loss of market value and $2 million for past physical pain and suffering by Bob and Lisa Parr and their daughter, $250,000 for future physical pain and suffering, $400,000 for past mental anguish.

The attorneys claim that the case is the first fracking verdict in Texas.
