Enbridge Energy prevailed in a federal district court ruling involving the last lawsuit that attempted to stop its Line 3 pipeline across Minnesota.

A federal judge has rejected claims by environmental groups and Ojibwe bands that the Army Corps of Engineers failed to adequately review Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline.

The controversial 340-mile oil pipeline across Minnesota opened a year ago, but one lawsuit challenging it had yet to be concluded - until Friday.

"The court concludes that the Corps complied with its obligations to assess the environmental consequences associated with its permits to Enbridge," wrote Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S District Court for the District of Columbia.
