High court hears local case

The Nebraska Supreme Court heard oral arguments Monday in a lawsuit over natural gas distribution lines at Central Community College-Hastings.

SourceGas Distribution LLC is asking the court to overturn a ruling made in Adams County District Court that would allow the city of Hastings to use eminent domain to acquire supply lines in an area recently annexed by the city.

On March 14, 2011, the city annexed Central Community College. The following week, the city and SourceGas began negotiating for the easements, right-of-way, natural gas pipelines, facilities and appurtenances within the annexed area.
