    Keystone pipeline could die on the legal court vine, before Obama approves

    Would like to hear what the board thinks about the Nebraska court ruling that could delay the Keystone pipeline (Nebraska Governor approval) for months if not longer. If I read this correctly the Lancaster judge really threw a major delay in the Keystone pipeline approval, unless the "State" department can act (approve) before Nebraska Governor gives his stamp of approval. I also worry about Kerry replacing Hilary and then claiming he needs months to review the whole State Department environmental review. Still think Keystone pipeline will be approved but now it looks like at the end of 2013, versus just a two or three months away. Anyone agree or disagree?

    A Lancaster County district judge has refused to block a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Nebraska's new pipeline siting law.Judge Stephanie Stacy on Monday denied a state request to dismiss the lawsuit that was filed in May by three people who own land along the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline. In the lawsuit, the three — Randy Thompson, of Martell; Susan Dunavan, of McCool Junction; and Susan Luebbe, of Stuart —say the law that established the review process is unconstitutional because it doesn't allow for judicial review and doesn't spell out what criteria should be considered when a pipeline project is being evaluated.

    Regarding the Lancaster Judge action - Keystone can't respond since this is a "state" issue and not a Keystone issue. And we all know how slowly states respond to anything. Hate to think this fiasco of a court fuling could delay things nine to twelve months.
