One year ago, we
posted a blog about TransCanada’s threat of
eminent domain if Nebraska landowners refused to sign contracts regarding the
Keystone XL Pipeline. Since this time, the case has come a long way and our firm has remained
involved in the developments. Most recently, the case has made its way
to the highest level with President Obama rejecting the permit application
that would allow TransCanada to construct its new pipeline.
Even after all this, TransCanada intends to continue its pursuit after
having spent roughly $2.4 billion on the project to date.
At Domina Law Group, our Nebraska trial attorneys are also dedicated to
continuing our efforts to stop this project. We encourage landowners throughout
the area to remain steadfast in their efforts as well because the legal
issues are ongoing despite the decision made by the president.
TransCanada’s project has been put on hold with the company withdrawing
its application for a route permit. This means that the Nebraska Public
Service Commission is not currently reviewing the pipeline. While landowners
should remain vigilant, TransCanada’s chances of gaining approval
look to be thin. They are still planning their next course of action to
seek approval regarding the Keystone XL Pipeline.
If you are a Nebraska landowner and your land has been threatened by the
Keystone XL Pipeline, our team at Domina Law Group is committed to helping
you. Our team is experienced with the related litigation and we understand
the current state of the TransCanada project. We work to protect Nebraskan
landowners at all times.
