As Texas farm owners square off with TransCanada, pipeline opponents see an opening

BEAUMONT, Texas -- Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline are hoping to rally angry landowners across the state to take action in courtrooms and build on a precedent set last year in the Texas Supreme Court. Yesterday at a court hearing held here at the Jefferson County Court at Law, a judge heard arguments over why TransCanada Corp., the company building the line, should be issued or denied a writ of possession that would allow its crews to access land ceded to it by Texas eminent domain law. The case pits TransCanada against a coalition of rice farm property owners challenging the company's contention that the pipeline is a necessary public good.
