Michael Bishop, right, receives cheers and other expressions of support from XL Pipeline opponents as he makes his way to the Nacogdoches County Courthouse in Nacogdoches, Texas, on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012, for an emergency hearing. TransCanada is building part of an oil pipeline designed to carry tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The property rights dispute is the latest legal battle to plague a project that has encountered numerous obstacles nationwide. Texas landowner Michael Bishop obtained a temporary restraining order from Sinz last Friday, arguing that TransCanada lied to Texans when it said it would be using the Keystone XL pipeline to transport crude oil.
