The District Court, Lincoln County, Cynthia Ferrell Ashwood, J., granted operators’ motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction. Property owner filed petition in error seeking review. Holding: The Supreme Court, Winchester, J., held that district court, rather than Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC), had exclusive jurisdiction over private tort action.
