An East Texas judge is to hear arguments from the Keystone XL oil pipeline developer to lift a temporary halt on pipeline construction on a private property.

TransCanada will make its plea to Nacogdoches County Court-at-Law Judge Jack Sinz at a hearing in Nacogdoches on Thursday.

TransCanada it is building part of an oil pipeline designed to carry tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The property rights dispute is the latest legal battle to plague a project that has encountered numerous obstacles nationwide.

Texas landowner Michael Bishop obtained a temporary restraining order from Sinz on Tuesday, arguing that TransCanada lied to Texans when it said it would be using the Keystone XL pipeline to transport crude oil.
