Pipes & Herlong Prevail in Condemnation Case

Casey Pipes and Warren Herlong successfully argued on behalf of
their land owner clients that a crude oil pipeline company lacked the power to
condemn property in Alabama because it was a limited liability company.   The
clients were defendants in a condemnation action and, at the “right to take”
hearing, the Mobile County Probate Judge agreed that the pipeline company,
because it was a limited liability company, lacked the state law power to
condemn anyone’s property.
