The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that it and another newspaper, The Observer-Reporter of Washington, are asking a court to open a sealed settlement between a Washington County family and Marcellus Shale development companies.

The family had alleged health problems as a result of gas drilling activities.

The Post-Gazette story says there are “27 other court cases in seven states involving confidential settlements or limited disclosure or nondisclosure of court proceedings.”
