Pipeline moving forward following Texas judge's ruling

PARIS - A Paris judge has approved a motion by TransCanada to dissolve a temporary restraining order brought against them by a Lamar County landowner.

Bill Harris made the ruling Friday. 

TransCanada wants to build a 1,700 mile oil pipeline spanning six states, including 18 Texas counties.

The Associated Press reports that landowner Julia Trigg Crawford, who had obtained the order, contends that the company trampled on her property rights and the project could harm Caddo Indian artifacts on her farm. 

A full trial that will include additional issues is set for April 30th.
