Appeals court: Condemnation for Texas pipeline OK

TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) — A Texas appeals court has upheld a lower-court ruling that allows the developer of the disputed Keystone XL oil pipeline to condemn Northeast Texas farm land for pipeline right of way.

In a 29-page ruling handed down Tuesday, the 6th Texas Court of Appeals in Texarkana ruled unanimously that a Lamar County court-at-law judge was within his authority to allow TransCanada to condemn the right of way.

In a statement, landowner Julia Trigg Crawford says she will appeal the ruling to the Texas Supreme Court.

TransCanada plans for the Keystone XL pipeline to carry oil from Canadian tar sands to Texas Gulf Coast refineries. Crawford had argued that TransCanada trampled her property rights and that the project could harm Caddo Indian artifacts on her farm.
