This is no laughing matter. A Post-Gazette story reported by Don Hopey on August 1st about a court settlement between a Washington Country family and Range Resources over natural gas drilling made an appearance on The Colbert Report last night.
In the segment Mr. Colbert referred to the PG story that said, "The non-disclosure agreement prohibiting Chris and Stephanie Hallowich from talking about the 2011 settlement of their high-profile Marcellus Shale damage case in Washington County, or saying anything about gas drilling and fracking, isn't unusual. It happens often in settling such cases. But the insistence that their two minor children, then ages 7 and 10, are also bound by the "gag order" is."
So here is the latest development in the Hallowiches' case for Mr. Colbert and others who might have missed it http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/local/washington/hallowich-children-not-part-of-gag-order-698343/
