Judge: ‘No’ To Stopping DAPL Completion

A federal judge has declined to stop construction of the final section of the Dakota Access pipeline.

KX News reports U.S. District Judge James Boasberg’s decision came early Tuesday.   The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux had asked the judge to direct the Army Corps of Engineers to withdraw permission for Energy Transfer Partners to lay pipe under Lake Oahe.

This means the pipeline could be in operation as early as sometime this month.

Is this the final word on the matter? Possibly not, as no final decision has been made on the merits of the tribes’ claims.
