Nacogdoches Co. land owner and TransCanada reach agreement - again

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - An agreement between Nacogdoches County landowner Mike Bishop and TransCanada Keystone pipeline was officially met - again.

Judge Jack Sinz approved an agreement Friday. Bishop won't hinder, delay or obstruct construction of the pipeline on his property. This is something Bishop said he's never done with the exception of legal action.

TransCanada will dismiss its case against Bishop and have over $24,000 in court costs returned and sent to attorneys. Likewise, costs were refunded to Bishop.

The judge's decision suggested the county court of law is not the place to hear the disagreements. Bishop has said he will file an appeal. There has been no word yet regarding whether or not the matters will be taken up in district court.

Meanwhile, the pipeline across Texas is expected to go on line by the end of the year.
