WASHINGTON Feb 19 (Reuters) - A state court in Nebraska on Wednesday invalidated the governor's decision to allow the controversial Keystone XL pipeline to pass through the Midwestern state.

Landowners' objections to the pipeline plan were upheld because the governor's decision was based on "an unconstitutional statute," the court order said.
