Freeholders Told Court Ruling
A ‘Big Setback’ For Penn East Pipeline
The attorney representing Hunterdon County in the PennEast Pipeline’s suit to condemn state-owned properties, told the Hunterdon County Freeholder Board Tuesday evening that a Federal Appeals Court ruling against the pipeline company earlier this month is ‘the first big setback they’ve had.’

Attorney Timothy Duggan of the Stark and Stark law firm in Lawrenceville said, “The third circuit court of appeals found that Penn East cannot sue the state of New Jersey in federal court, and the state is now dismissed from 43 cases and Hunterdon County is in about 20 of those cases. We believe this is a big victory.”
