New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against PennEast and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to prevent the two from using eminent domain on open space properties to build a pipeline.
Attorney General Gubir Grewal filed the motion.
This is the latest development in the controversial attempt of PennEast to build a 116-mile natural gas pipeline from Luzerne County, Pennsylvania to Mercer County, New Jersey.
Multiple people have complained, saying the pipeline threatens open space, farmland and people's property.
FERC had approved the pipeline in late January, but homeowners have submitted a request for rehearing, challenging its approval.
For a second weekend, drivers are being warned to avoid Interstate 78 westbound near the New Jersey-Pennsylvania border.Read More »
