Nebraska high court won't take up pipeline case
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- The Nebraska Supreme Court has refused to hear a direct challenge to the state's new pipeline siting law.
The court Wednesday rejected efforts by opponents of the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline who had hoped the court would use its power of original jurisdiction.
A member of the plaintiffs' legal team, Brian Jorde, said that the Supreme Court rejection "doesn't say anything about the merits of the case."
