Babst Calland: Ohio Judge Rules in Favor of Permitting Surveys in NEXUS Pipeline Case

By Michael T. Altvater

The Medina County Court of Common Pleas issued a decision allowing surveys to be completed on tracts of land along the proposed NEXUS pipeline route. In Nexus Gas Transmission, LLC v. Houston, the Court ruled that the plain language of Chapter 163 of the Ohio Revised Code provides a right to access private property for the purpose of taking surveys for the pipeline project. The ruling will allow the NEXUS pipeline owners to move ahead with obtaining approval for the project from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
