WV Supreme Court concluded the proposed MVP natural gas pipeline is not being constructed for public use and upheld the ruling of a county court allowing property owners to bar surveyors from entering their land.

"MVP has been unable to identify even a single West Virginia consumer, or a West Virginia natural gas producer who is not affiliated with MVP, who will derive a benefit from MVPs pipeline ... In fact, the only benefit to West Virginia that has been asserted by MVP in this appeal is that the benefit to producers and shippers of the natural gas that is located in West Virginia. Significantly, however, the owners of the natural gas are affiliated with MVP." - Justice Robin Davis, majority Opinion
