Fam­ily told to leave Sunoco-seized land

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM -

HUNT­ING­DON, Pa. — A judge has or­dered a Penn­syl­va­nia fam­ily to va­cate some of its prop­erty that was seized by a com­pany that wants to lay a $2.5 bil­lion pipe­line across it.

An at­tor­ney for the Ger­hart fam­ily isn’t sure whether they’ll ap­peal Thurs­day’s or­der by Hunt­ing­don County Judge Ge­orge Zanic.

The fam­ily and their sup­port­ers have been camp­ing out on the prop­erty to protest a right of way ob­tained by Sunoco Lo­gis­tics.

The Ger­harts are still wait­ing for the state Supreme Court to hear an ap­peal of Zanic’s ear­lier rul­ing let­ting Sunoco take 3.2 acres of the fam­ily’s 27-acre tract through em­i­nent do­main.

The fam­ily says the 350-mile Mariner East 2 pipe­line that will carry propane, bu­tane and eth­ane is dan­ger­ous and dam­ages the en­vi­ron­ment.
