An action has been filed in the 143rd JD styled XXXXX v Agave Natural Resources, LLC, et al, according to a Lis Pendens just filed by an attorney in Midland representing certain mineral / royalty owners who have been duped into granting "Royalty Leases" in Reeves County. I'm not going to provide the details - you can find it yourselves, but thought I'd bring this old problem back up for discussion.
See Cause No 17-02-21868-CVR
The action, according to the Notice, involves the validity of certain "oil and gas royalty leases" wrongfully procured by defendants and oil and gas royalties paid to defendants as a result of such misconduct.
Further, it alleges "the invalidity and illegality of oil and gas royalty leases and proceeds paid to defendants thereunder"...
I've read the Plaintiff's Original Petition - it's a doozie. It alleges Common Law Fraud, Unconscionability and Conspiracy.
It appears that the instruments in question are the same as those discussed in this forum involving Ridge Natural Resources LLC.
