May 18 (Bloomberg) -- Sharon Wilson, who writes for the blog BlueDaze and works for the Earthworks' Oil & Gas Accountability Project, discusses the court order filed by gas driller Range Resources Corp. against Steven Lipsky and Alisa Rich. Lipsky, a homeowner in Weatherford, Texas, recorded methane-fueled flames shooting out of his well and holds Range responsible for the contamination. He hired Alisa Rich to test the water in his well and alert the Environmental Protection Agency. Wilson posted the video footage on YouTube. Range is seeking $3 million in damages from Rich and Lipsky, accusing them of harming the company's reputation.
