Ernst vs EnCana Corporation by Peggy Wright

I would like to know if you have heard of this lawsuit which began in 2007 in Rosebud, Alberta, and if so, have you been following its progress? It has been working its way through the court system, and just this past April, it was ruled by the Supreme Court of Canada that Jessica Ernst does have the right to sue Alberta Environment, the Alberta Energy Regulator and EnCana Corporation for contamination of her well water due to hydraulic fracking. This case hilights how difficult and time consuming it is for individuals to stand up to large corporations in court. Please comment. (All information can be acquired with a google search.)
