Matt Salzman to Present on Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctive Relief in Surface Use Disputes

Speaking Engagement

Stinson Leonard Street partner Matt Salzman is presenting at the Kansas Bar Association's 7th Annual Spring Oil, Gas & Mineral Law CLE March 2, 2018 at the Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS.

At 9:50 a.m. Matt will present "Shotguns, Locked Gates, and Indignation: Litigating Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctive Relief in Surface Use Disputes." The presentation will cover the various contexts in which these sorts of claims arise and provide an overview of the key issues on which the lawyers litigating them need to focus.

The presentation will be based on a paper Matt co-authored with Aaron Friess and was originally presented at a Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation Special Institute in Denver, and was just recently published in the RMMLF Journal. The presentation will be divided in to three parts: (1) framing the issue and discussing context of surface use disputes, (2) discussion of the requirements for injunctions, preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders, and (3) a hypothetical scenario.

Matt is a partner in the firm's Kansas City office and co-chairs the firm's Oil & Gas Practice Group. He represents clients in oil and gas consulting and litigation in various matters such as lease formation, compliance, and termination; AMI and joint development agreements and disputes; JIB and operator/non-operator issues; surface use and right-of-way agreements and disputes; and surface damage, trespass, nuisance, and oilfield service disputes. Matt has represented clients in five antitrust oil and gas class actions, and well over a dozen royalty interest owner class actions involving well over a billion dollars of underpaid royalty claims.

Aaron is an attorney in the firm's Bismarck office. He is licensed in North Dakota and New Mexico and his practice encompasses all facets of energy law, including transactions, litigation, and regulatory practice before administrative agencies. Aaron is a member of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation and a past recipient of the David P. Phillips Scholarship, the Foundation’s highest award for excellence.
