Sunoco is attempting to acquire property rights to build a 50 mile section of a project called the Mariner East Pipeline. Sunoco petitioned the Washington County Court for approval of the power of Eminent Domain. I represent the se property owners and presented multiple defenses via written and oral argument. Judge Katherine B. Emery denied the Sunoco Petition and scheduled discovery and a hearing on the property owners’ Complaint in Equity. The Orders of the Judge will allow for presentation of evidence in support of multiple defenses to the attempt to use Eminent Domain power.
