Professor Robertson’s Column on Eminent Domain, Landowner Rights and Pipeline Development Published in Shale Magazine

Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson, C|M|LAW’s Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law, has published a column in the current issue of Shale Magazine, entitled Imminent Domain- Fights are breaking out over landowner rights and pipeline development – understanding the rules in more important than ever.  Appearing on page 20 of the current issue, published in print on December 15, 2014, Professor Robertson’s column addresses the circumstances under which natural gas pipeline companies gain the power of eminent domain to build interstate natural gas pipelines.  It discusses the statutory rationale and justification for the process, which essentially gives eminent domain power to private companies and also sets forth landowner options for participation.  A PDF copy of the column is available below:
