Pending outcome of Nebraska lawsuit. Environmental issues aside, this lawsuit is not insignificant. At issue: Can a foreign corporation (TransCanada) trample on the rights Americans by asserting emminent domain for the purpose of building the pipeline, forcing the dislocation of hundreds of Nebraska landowners? I would not be surprised if this lawsuit goes all the way to the Supreme Court to settle.
Thank you Obama for having the courage and leadership in making the right call in the face of tremendous pressure from the GOP, Big Oil, Unions and special interest groups.
