Ruling expected this week on injunction against Dakota Access
March 7, 2017
A federal judge has promised a ruling this week on an injunction that could halt the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The controversial project is all but complete except for a small portion on federally-managed land in North Dakota. The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe hopes it can stop oil from flowing through the pipeline with a request for a preliminary injunction, citing threats to its religious beliefs and way of life.
