Federal Judge Rules in Favor of TVA in Eminent Domain Dispute

U.S. District Court Judge Harry "Sandy" Mattice on Friday rejected a challenge to the Tennessee Valley Authority's plans to erect a transmission line through farmland in south Meigs County to help supply power for a new $300 million load control center, The Times Free Press reports. Mattice ruled that TVA was within its legal right in its order of possession issued to Greg Vital to enter his property in preparation for seeking a right-of-way for the power line route. Vital is the president and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior Living and owner of hundreds of acres of land near Georgetown.
