By the time some homeowners in Boxtown, a neighborhood in southwest Memphis, discovered they had been sued and that a crude oil pipeline company was seeking to take their property by eminent domain, it was almost too late.

Enter BPJ attorneys Scott Crosby, Sarah Stuart and Will Irvine.

What happened next? You’ll have to listen to Episode 5 of the still-developing podcast by the Southern Environmental Law Center, “Broken Ground,” about how Memphis beat the odds to stop the Byhalia Pipeline.

It’s a fascinating listen. Congratulations to Scott, Sarah and Will for their good work for our community.
