Appeals court upholds ruling in Keystone XL Pipeline case

TEXARKANA — A state appeals court Tuesday upheld a lower court's decision in a Lamar County woman’s fight against the installation of an oil pipeline on her land.

The Sixth District Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the summary judgment motion granted by the Lamar County Court at Law one year ago to TransCanada Keystone Pipeline. Arguments in the appeal were presented July 30 during an appearance by the appeals court in Greenville.

The decision in the Lamar County Court at Law upheld TransCanada’s condemnation of a 50-foot strip of land across Crawford’s pasture. The pipeline is being built to carry oil to Texas refineries from Canada.



Julia Trigg Crawford, of The Crawford Family Farm Partnership, has indicated she intended to appeal the case to the Texas Supreme Court.
