Supreme Court Hearings - Vernon Joseph Smith v. Alliance Pipeline Ltd.
Vernon Joseph Smith v. Alliance Pipeline Ltd. - October 5, 2010
Alliance Pipeline Ltd. built a pipeline across a portion of Vernon Smith's farmland in Alberta in 1999. The parties agreed to the pipeline's construction, but a dispute arose over the reclamation of a part of the land. Smith began the reclamation work and sought compensation for his legal costs. Alliance appealed the decision of an arbitration panel that awarded costs to Smith.
