Podcast Episode 40 – Pipeline Right to Take Question – The Puntenney Case

In Episode 40 of the Eminent Domain Podcast,  I discuss a right to take issue involving pipelines that was highlighted in the recent Iowa Supreme Court opinion in Puntenney v. Iowa Utilities Board.  Here’s the issue:  if a pipeline is transporting product that is not being used in the state it is crossing (and, at times, is not even transporting product produced in the state it is crossing), is that a public use?  I believe this issue will arise more often after the regulations prohibiting overseas shipping of domestically produced oil and gas were lifted in 2015.  The property owner in the Puntenney case has recently filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari.  More background about the case can be found at Robert Thomas’ blog here: https://www.inversecondemnation.com/inversecondemnation/2019/05/iowa-dakota-access-pipeline-will-promote-the-public-convenience-for-iowa-even-if-iowans-dont-get-any.html
