  • PIPELINE OWNERS: They oppose line crossing their land near Dover

We've written extensively about opposition in Arkansas to  the  proposed Diamond  pipeline to carry Bakken shale crude on a pipeline from Oklahoma to Memphis, without any offloading of product in Arkansas and, many fear, potential harm to protected natural areas as well as dozens of pieces of other private property.

At least one court has already granted eminent domain to the pipeline, as noted in this article about growing opposition.

But the legal fight isn't over. Arkansas Business reports here on a lawsuit that contends pipelines with no business in the state except crossing it should not have the power of eminent domain given "common carriers." There is no public use in Arkansas for the pipeline, the suit argues.
