The Nebraska Easement Action Team (NEAT) hosted a brunch and panel discussion in Norfolk on May 1st: “Landowner Experiences with Eminent Domain & Pipelines.

The discussion focused on landowners sharing their experiences with bullying land agents, surveying, and eminent domain threats — on both Keystone XL and new proposed carbon pipelines (and for some unfortunate folks, both) — along with an overview from attorney Brian Jorde with Domina Law Group on the growing landowners’ legal co-ops that are forming under the Easement Action Teams in NebraskaIowaSouth Dakota, and North Dakota.
