Pipeline route may move off Carter Avenue to along Interstate 30
Thursday, Mar. 11, 2010
Chesapeake has acquired easements from all but one resident along Carter Avenue, Steve Doeung, who has been fighting the condemnation on procedural grounds. A judge told Doeung last week that he was close to giving Chesapeake the right to build the pipeline beneath Doeung’s property.
Once construction begins on the I-30 route, Davis said she wants Chesapeake to return the right-of-way to the homeowners.

That this one lone little guy has been able to fight off the awesome power og eminent domain wielded bt a ruthless deep-pocketed profiteer like CHK (and their collaborator the City of FW) for 1 and 1/2 year is extraordinary. As someone who knows something about the power of E.D., I am left to think that either this Steve man is super bright (and/or lucky for some reason) or CHK has been caught in their many unconscienable acts. There are more to this story than what we know so far. Like
ayor Tillman and yourself Txsharon, Steve is fighting the "powers" and is victorious. God bless you guys for what you're doing. Such people and actions are samples of America (and Texas?) at its best. The ruthless companies, corrupt governmental entities, and apathetic/cowering citizenry are examples of the dark and worst sides of this great nation/people.
