WASHINGTON Jan 9 (Reuters) - The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday reversed a lower court that had blocked a route for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

The decision appeared to boost TransCanada Corp and its claim to build a crude oil pipeline across the state by leaving in place earlier legislation that blessed a pipeline route. (Reporting By Aruna Viswanatha and Patrick Rucker)
