David Domina Testifies at Nebraska Legislative Special Session on LB 3 Regarding Eminent Domain and Pipelines

Attorney David Domina, a Nebraska personal injury and trial lawyer, testified at the Nebraska Legislative Special Session on LB3- the bill regarding eminent domain and pipelines. Nebraska State Senator Bill Avery of Lincoln proposed to amend Legislative Bill 3 so that there would be criminal penalties for pipeline officials who place undue pressure on and manipulate landowners with eminent domain before a pipeline has officially been approved. Senator Avery called this practice a misrepresentation of the truth, as pipeline officials have no legal right to push eminent domain until a pipeline and its route have been federally and state approved.

He proposed that a first offense would be a misdemeanor (one year imprisonment and $1,000 fine) and all following offenses would be felonies (up to five years imprisonment and $10,000 fine). Our firm's own David Domina stated his approval of the amended legislation, saying that Nebraska currently does not have limits on how pipeline companies can use eminent domain.
