WV Supreme Court sides with landowners on unauthorized gas line surveys


Developers of the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline cannot survey land for the project without the permission of the landowners, the West Virginia Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

Justices upheld an August 2015 ruling by Monroe County Circuit Judge Robert A. Irons in favor of Bryan and Doris McCurdy, residents of the county who argued that allowing the pipeline company onto their property without their permission violates a basic right of all West Virginians.
