Opponents on Enbridge Line 3 project take case to Minnesota Supreme Court
July 15, 2021
Environmental groups and Ojibwe bands opposing Enbridge's new Line 3 oil pipeline have taken their legal claims to the Minnesota Supreme Court.
The groups petitioned the high court on Wednesday to overturn a June decision by the Minnesota Court of Appeals, which affirmed utility regulators' approval of the controversial $3 billion-plus project to replace Enbridge's corroding Line 3.
The state Supreme Court usually hears fewer than 15% of the petitions it receives.
