Judge Slams Landowners in Canadian Pipeline Ruling

Texas landowners are vowing to fight on despite a county judge's ruling that a Canadian company can run a pipeline across private property to bring crude oil to Gulf Coast refineries.

Red'Arc farm manager Julia Trigg Crawford is behind the lawsuit. She says in a statement Thursday she is disappointed by the ruling from Lamar County Court-at-Law Judge Bill Harris that TransCanada can use eminent domain to obtain right of way across her family's farm.

Harris issued the ruling late Wednesday. Crawford says she will take her battle to the state Legislature.

TransCanada wants to build a pipeline from Alberta, Canada, to Gulf Coast refineries. While it awaits a U.S. State Department decision on that project, it plans to construct a section of pipeline from Oklahoma to the Gulf.
