Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Renews Legal Challenge Against DAPL


November 2, 2018

WASHINGTON - A new chapter opened today in the legal fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline, as the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe renewed their lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers challenging its recently completed review of the pipeline’s impacts. The Tribe’s lawyers at Earthjustice today filed a supplemental complaint in its existing case, overseen by U.S. District Judge Jeb Boasberg in Washington, D.C.

“The Corps has conducted a sham process to arrive at a sham conclusion, for the second time,” said Mike Faith, Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. “The Dakota Access Pipeline represents a clear and present danger to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its people, and we will continue to fight until the Corps complies with the law.”
