Federal Appeals Court Stops Work on Atlantic Coast Pipeline
On May 16th, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit—ruling in a suit brought by the Southern Environmental Law Center—invalidated the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. They ruled the permit inadequately assessed potential impact on both endangered and sensitive species. A forthcoming order will soon set out the reasoning of the panel.
As a result, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service must now fully reassess the potential impact of the project on local wildlife and correctly resubmit the permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. To read the full article, click here.
In addition to concerns regarding the safety of endangered and sensitive species, hundreds of North Carolina landowners are concerned the pipeline—which will cross eight North Carolina counties—will negatively impact their land.
It is important to understand your rights as a property owner. The law requires that the government or condemning agency pay you “just compensation”, but we find in the majority of cases, the offers made by the government fail to be fair to property owners and undervalue properties from 50% or more.
