Houston Appellate Court Rules Against Pipeline Company

June 24, 2020 Posted in Industry News

The First District Court of Appeals out of Houston issued an opinion recently, finding that the HSC Pipeline Partnership, LLC pipeline company did not qualify as a common carrier and did not have the power to condemn a pipeline easement.  The appellate court also held that the landowner should have been permitted to present evidence of what he had been paid by other pipelines that previously obtained easements on his property.  It is currently unknown if the pipeline company plans to appeal to the Supreme Court of Texas.
