WASHINGTON (AP) — An American Indian tribe succeeded Tuesday in getting a federal judge to temporarily stop construction on some, but not all, of a $3.8 billion four-state oil pipeline, but its broader request still hangs in the balance.
U.S. District Judge James Boasberg said Tuesday that work will temporarily stop between North Dakota’s State Highway 1806 and 20 miles east of Lake Oahe, but will continue west of the highway because he believes the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lacks jurisdiction on private land.
Thousands of people have come to North Dakota to stand with the Indian tribes including Presidential Candidate Jill Stein. Looks like Jill is going to be arrested while the local law seemd to be siding with the oil company. What a surprise right Folks?
