Range Resources Corp. is taking Robinson, Washington County, to court to win approval for two gas well sites.

The Texas company's local subsidiary filed suit in a state appeals court Monday asking it to review land-use decisions from township supervisors. The company claims township officials aren't following their own laws and have illegally extended local permit hearings since November.

The company controls oil and gas rights on a 168-acre tract off of Midway Candor Road and a second 84-acre tract on Valley View Road, according to the complaint. It wants to develop both properties.
