Borling’s attorney, Greg Huber, said his client was caught off guard and was upset when he alluded to the shotgun shells.
“He wasn’t going to use it,” Huber said. “He was just upset.”
Huber criticized the NEXUS Gas Transmission Pipeline — which is a combination of efforts by Houston-based Spectra Energy Corp., Detroit-based DTE Energy and Canada-based Enbridge Inc. — for sending out surveyors just days after the judge ruled.
“Normally, you have 30 days to file a notice of appeal,” he said. “I had no idea that two days after the order, they’d have people on my clients’ doorsteps without any communication to me, trying to get them to sign things.”
