Lawsuit Against Atlantic Coast Pipeline Still Undecided

NelsonCountyA hearing was held yesterday regarding surveying for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, but the fate of a lawsuit filed by five Nelson County residents against Dominion Transmission is still undecided. The lawsuit, filed in September, asks the court to declare the Virginia Code that allows natural gas companies to survey private property as long as previous notification as an unconstitutional statute– Dominion responded in November by asking the U.S. District Court to dismiss the suit  which was the focus of legal arguments on Thursday. The judge heard from both sides but did not make a ruling saying he would be releasing a written opinion on his decision instead.
