State Supreme Court OK's Woman's Lawsuit Against Energy Companies

Steve Shaw, News 9

Oklahoma's Supreme Court Tuesday ruled that a Prague woman can sue two Oklahoma energy companies.

Sandra Ladra, 64, filed her suit 10 months ago against New Dominion and Spess Oil companies.

On November 5, 2011, the largest recorded earthquake in Oklahoma's history rocked the town of Prague. In her lawsuit, Ladra alleged the earthquake caused rock from her fireplace and chimney to fall into her lap, causing serious injuries to her right knee.

We reached out to Ladra and her attorneys on Tuesday, but have not heard back. However, three years ago Ladra recounted the experience.

"It was just rocks coming down and it was just everything was making such a loud noise, it was really scary," she said.

While the state Supreme Court ruled Ladra's case can proceed, its members did not discuss the merits of her case.
