Landowner members of the Nebraska Easement Action Team who have received direct threats of eminent domain against their land by TransCanada today filed suit against the company. The lawsuits, filed last week, represent Nebraska property owners' second attempt to challenge the constitutionality of a law that gave the Keystone XL pipeline a legal route through the state and, by extension, their property.
