Court halts construction of another section of pipeline

 


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A federal appeals court has ordered a halt to construction of another section of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said in a ruling late Friday that it needs more time to consider the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s request for an emergency injunction. It said it will issue another order setting a date for oral arguments on the motion.

The order “should not be construed in any way as a ruling on the merits of that motion,” the panel said.
