Enbridge Energy is replacing one of its key pipelines that runs through  Michigan. Nearly 285 miles of new pipeline is required to replace the ruptured  line that caused an oil spill in July 2010.

Enbridge took homeowners to court in numerous eminent domain conflicts.

To further address the issue of eminent domain, we spoke with Avery Williams and Alan Ackerman. Williams provides land acquisition advice for Detroit and Ackerman represents displaced persons and businesses in court.
