Landowners Attorney Presents Case In Nebraska Court

Landowners Attorney Presents Case In Nebraska Court

Three Nebraska Landowners are contending the state legislature gave the Governor illegal power to take away their land for TransCanada’s Keystone pipeline project.  The landowners, Randy Thompson, Susan Luebbe and  Susan Dunavan represented by Domina law firm were in Lancaster County Court late last week.   Attorney Dave Domina says they presented a strong case in asking that the legislation giving the Governor eminent domain power be struck down.

Domina says only oral arguments were given and the Judge took the case under advisement and will issue a written decision later.

State Assistant Attorney General Katherine Spohn argued Nebraska resident’s rights were not violated telling the Judge that the measure complied with the state’s constitution. The Judge gave no time frame for when the decision would be issued.
