Legal groups look to help tribe by finding new ways to challenge pipeline


NEAR CANNON BALL, N.D. — Dakota Access Pipeline opponents prepared Thursday to continue camping near the Missouri and Cannonball rivers while legal groups said they're looking for new ways to challenge the pipeline.

Honor The Earth, an environmental rights group that opposed Enbridge's Sandpiper Pipeline in Minnesota, is now focusing efforts on the Dakota Access Pipeline and looking for potential legal challenges to file, said Tara Houska, national campaigns director.

Houska said there could be more complaints filed in addition to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's federal court case to make sure "that we are defending against the project in every way that we possibly can."
