Sioux Tribe today filed a major legal brief challenging the Trump Administration’s approval of the Dakota Access pipeline,
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe today filed a major legal brief challenging the Trump Administration’s hasty approval of the controversial Dakota Access crude oil pipeline, a project in which the President and his associates have had close financial ties. The Tribe’s summary judgment asks the Court to overturn recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits of the pipeline issued without environmental review or consideration of treaty rights.
In the law suit, the Sioux ask that a federal court in Washington, D.C., overturn the Corps’ decision to grant the final easement for DAPL. Hasselman’s use of the phrase “arbitrary and capricious” was very deliberate.
In the suit, the Sioux ask that a federal court in Washington, D.C., overturn the Corps’ decision to grant the final easement for the pipeline at Lake Oahe on the Missouri River, which the Corps previously planned to withhold until a full environmental review could be conducted. The North Dakota tribe contends that construction at Lake Oahe could contaminate the main water supply and violate treaty rights.
Press release – The Federal Judge denied the Temporary Restraining Order which would block further construction and operation of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The hearing on the Preliminary Injunction is scheduled for 27 February.
