(AP U'irephoto) Supreme Court Upholds Alaska Pipeline Legality WASHINGTON (AP) -- The .. Supreme Court has upheld the ""constitutionality of the Alaska Pipeline Act and has agreed to decide whether the pipeline's builders must pay for a lawsuit which delayed its construction. Other cases which the court 'agreed Tuesday to hear will .test whether states may deny welfare benefits for unborn children and whether widowers ' '-iBiay be denied Social Security beirtefits which widows receive. - The court also agreed to review Pennsylvania laws providing state assistance to private school pupils and a Texas law requiring approval of a majority of property owners for bonds issues. The pipelise act was challenged by Byron T. Brown, a Phqenix, Ariz., businessman whOiproposed a rival plan calling for a pipeline suspended from towers. Brown challenged a provision in the act which, ruled out most legal challenges to the permit granted to the Alyeska Pipeline - Service Corp. for a surface pipeline. On March 7, U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Waddy of Washington, D.C., ruled that the pipeline act was "a valid, constitutional exercise of the power of Congress to limit the scope of judicial review." The Supreme Court affirmed Waddy's decision in a brief order in which it did not explain its reasoning. The court agreed to hear the appeal of Alyeska from a 4-; decision of the U.S. Court Appeals in Washington that must pay costs of an environ v . mental lawsuit which held u] 'pipeline construction. The suit was filed by. the Wil derness Society, Friends of the Earth, and the Environmenta Defense Fund, and consumei 4,455 hours of lawyer time. Th appeals court said the environ mental groups were entitled t their expenses because the acted in behalf of an importan . public policy. The amount of the costs ha not been determined.
