Federal Judge: No Jurisdiction in NEXUS Pipeline

(Akron, OH) A federal judge refuses to stop construction of the controversial NEXUS natural gas pipeline. 

A federal judge in Akron has dismissed a lawsuit filed by more than 60 northern Ohio property owners hoping to stop the high-pressure natural gas pipeline. 

The group wanted the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) prevented from approving construction plans for the 250-mile NEXUS pipeline, which will cross several counties in Northwest Ohio. 

But the judge agreed with a magistrate that federal court lacks the jurisdiction to consider the challenge. 

The  $2 billion pipeline will carry 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily from the shale fields of eastern Ohio into Michigan and Ontario, Canada.
