Federal judge to rule Sept. 9 on Dakota Access injunction


A federal judge will rule by Sept. 9 on the injunction filed by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, according to attorneys representing the tribe.

U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg in Washington, D.C., decided Wednesday to take a couple of weeks to rule on whether to halt the pipeline's construction while the tribe pursues its lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, alleging violation of the National Historic Preservation Act during the pipeline permitting process.

Stephanie Tsosie of Earthjustice, co-counsel for the case, said Boasberg stated he wanted more time to look at the issues.
