Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson has published Cities Seethe: A Case Study of Local Efforts to Influence Natural Gas Pipeline Routing Decisions, in the West Virginia Law Review. The article considers the efforts of local jurisdictions to influence the routing of a natural gas pipeline through Ohio. In particular, it evaluates the largely unsuccessful efforts of the City of Green, Ohio, to work with other jurisdictions and the judicial and administrative processes to move the Nexus/Spectra Energy pipeline away from Green to a less densely populated area. The article is available at 122 W. Va. L. Rev. 881 (2020), or here: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3652422
Robertson is the Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law at Cleveland-Marshall, and Professor of Environmental Studies at the Levin College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University.
