WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear an appeal by Dominion Energy Inc (N:) and President Donald Trump’s administration of a lower court ruling that halted construction on a pipeline due to run underneath a section of the popular Appalachian Trail in rural Virginia.
The administration and companies involved in the project have asked the justices to overturn a ruling that found that the U.S. Forest Service lacked the authority to grant a right of way for the pipeline. Environmental groups had sued to stop the pipeline after the Forest Service gave the green light for the project through protected National Park Service land.
