Phillip Boudreaux is back in a St. Martin Parish courtroom today as the last hold-out landowner fights the energy company constructing the 162-mile pipeline across south Louisiana.
For day two of the trial energy transfer partners, the company behind the bayou bridge pipeline is trying to argue that the landowners have to give them the right of ways because the constructing the pipeline falls under eminent domain.
