Landowners are speaking out about the lawsuit filed by Mountain Valley Pipeline.
Mountain Valley filed a lawsuit in the US District Court, after landowners refused to let the company survey their property. Now, residents are being told by the company that they have eminent domain. That means the government has the right to use private property for public use, as long as they pay the property owner. Landowners told 59 News they've never seen a document from Mountain Valley to back up that statement.
