Landowners Request for Temporary Injunction Granted Against TransCanada Nebraska Landowners Stop KXL Condemnation Proceedings

Landowners Request for Temporary Injunction Granted Against TransCanada

Nebraska Landowners Stop KXL Condemnation Proceedings

 

O’NEILL, Neb. – Today Nebraska State District Court Judge Mark Kozisek issued a Temporary Injunction in a landowner lawsuit against TransCanada. The Order halts condemnation cases along the proposed TransCanada Keystone Pipeline XL route in northern Nebraska.

 The Order followed a hearing in District Court at O'Neill NE, at which, for the first time in Nebraska, the landowners’ lawyers squared off directly against lawyers for TransCanada.  In previous litigation, landowners were pitted against the State Attorney General.  The change came when the State Supreme Court was unable to decide the merits of constitutional issues about the law TransCanada must rely on to acquire land in Nebraska.
