Lawsuit challenges Enbridge pipelines


MINNEAPOLIS -- A lawsuit filed by environmentalist groups against the federal government is expected to have broad implications on several oil pipeline development projects in North Dakota and Minnesota.

Oral arguments will be heard by federal judge Michael Davis in Minneapolis on Thursday morning in the lawsuit filed by Honor The Earth, MN350, the Sierra Club and others against the U.S. State Department and Secretary of State John Kerry.

The plaintiffs allege Kerry and the State Department have allowed Alberta-based pipeline company Enbridge to illegally circumvent the presidential permitting process for pipeline construction across the U.S.-Canada border.
