Activist Winona LaDuke won a court decision preventing Hubbard County officials from blocking protesters near the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline.

Protesters in Hubbard County were using a private driveway - not a county trail - to gather in opposition to the Enbridge Line 3 tar sands pipeline last year, a judge has ruled, concluding that the county was wrong to block their way.

In an order issued Tuesday, Hubbard County District Judge Jana Austad barred county officials from interfering with people coming and going from the Giniw Collective's Line 3 Camp Namewag near Menahga.

The 1,100-mile pipeline, which went into service in October carrying heavy crude oil from Canada to Superior, Wis., has been the focus of protests for years.
