"Nebraska Court Invalidates State's Keystone Pipeline Approval"

"A Nebraska court on Wednesday invalidated the governor's decision to allow the Keystone XL pipeline to pass through the Midwestern state, casting new uncertainty over the controversial project to link Alberta's oil sands with refineries in Texas."

"Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman last year supported legislation that cleared the way for TransCanada Corp's $5.4 billion pipeline to cross parts of his state.

But some landowners objected to the legislation, saying it sidestepped their rights."

Patrick Rucker and Valerie Volcovici report for Reuters February 19, 2014.
