N. Natural Gas Co. v. Nash Oil, 07-3104

In an action for, inter alia, common law conversion and unjust enrichment arising out of alleged migration of plaintiff's stored gas to defendant's gas wells, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) the unjust enrichment and conversion claims were time barred the statute of limitations; 2) the Kansas Supreme Court would not recognize the continuing-tort exception to the statute of limitations for those claims; 3) a state law merely abolishes the rule of capture and does not set up an independent cause of action; and 4) an injector may conduct tests only on wells of adjoining property owners.
