Mass. Attorney General Will Challenge Natural Gas Pipeline Easement

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey intends to defend the state against a lawsuit by a gas pipeline developer who seeks to tear up a state forest and override a protection afforded by the state’s Constitution, according to a recent American Energy Coalition post.

The attorney general will defend the state against Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co., which seeks an easement through the Otis State Forest for a new natural gas pipeline spur that would serve three natural gas utilities in Connecticut. The Kinder Morgan subsidiary recently sued the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to gain rights to tear down trees on the state conservation land along the pipeline route.
