The Ladras are asking New Dominion, LLC, to offer up information about their disposal wells near Prague and details concerning any communication with the government about their link to earthquakes. According to the Poynter Law Group, the Ladras say multiple oil and gas companies, including New Dominion, LLC, pressured the government to avoid linking the wells to seismic activity.

The hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Cleveland County Courthouse.
