(Worthy News) – A federal judge dismissed Thursday a multi-state lawsuit challenging President Biden’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, ruling that the company’s subsequent decision to kill the project renders the legal battle moot.
U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey Vincent Brown said TC Energy’s June decision to terminate the $8 billion, 1,200-mile project means the court has no jurisdiction to consider the 23-state lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Texas.
“The court takes TC Energy at its word that Keystone XL is dead,” said Judge Brown in his 18-page opinion. “Because it is dead, any ruling this court makes on whether President Biden had the authority to revoke the permit would be advisory. Thus, the court has no jurisdiction and the case must be dismissed as moot.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
