J & J Land Development, LLC v. Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC and TC Energy, LLC
Plaintiff asks the court to declare the rights of J & J to cross an easement for the benefit of defendants in order to develop a parcel of real estate into a residential subdivision known as Womack Road subdivision, as the development will allow plaintiff to fully use the premises without interfering with the ability of defendants to maintain or operate the gas line. Plaintiff says defendants have said, in a letter of March 16, 2021, that it would oppose the crossing if plaintiff did not pay costs of $377,000 to inspect and prepare gas lines. Plaintiff says it is being blocked from developing 11 lots to be sold to a third party, and asks that the court allow development of roads without any cost being assessed, or in the alternative, damages of $5 million.
