The city of Denton went to court Friday seeking a restraining order against Dallas-based EagleRidge Energy, complaining that the producer failed to get necessary permits for two new wells. The wells are closer to residences than the city's drilling ordinance allows, say news reports. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 30. A link to Texas Tribune's story is here. The Denton Record-Chronicle has a report here.
