Spectra may bull through pronghorn antelope in Texas, but suing a Georgia Centennial Family Farm provokes some resistance.
PoetsLoveBirds, 14 May 2015, Spectra Energy: Like a Bull in a China Shop,
Spectra Energy is a Fortune 500 company based in Houston, Texas. They say that they are one of North America’s leading natural gas, natural gas liquids and crude oil infrastructure companies. Their claim to fame — It builds pipelines to ship natural gas. It builds storage facilities to hold natural gas. It distributes natural gas. …
But wait, let’s hear from Spectra Energy. On their spiffy website, sporting a wonderful picture of a Pronghorn, they are clear about how they thrive. Please note. Spectra looks beyond success. They intend to thrive. And, they tell us right up front how they plan to do it.“By achieving the right balance among, economic, environmental and social considerations to stakeholders like you.”
What they failed to note. What they didn’t even mention about thriving and balance and social considerations — they gladly sue farm families in Georgia. One Spectra Energy generated trial begins on May 28, 2015 at 9:30 a.m. at the Courthouse Annex in Moultrie, Georgia.
Why would a $15 Billion Dollar energy company sue a farm family?

Apologies to Funagain Games for using their Bull in a China Shop picture. And maybe Spectra will find this lawsuit less fun than they expected. You can help: come to the hearing or write to the judge. And you can join the facebook event to show support.
