Court Says DAPL Project Possibly Won’t Continue Until 2017

Eight pipeline protesters have been arrested in Bismarck after protesting at two Wells Fargo locations and at the William Guy Federal Building.

Court documents indicate a federal judge likely won’t decide until early next year whether to give the developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline permission to finish the $3.8 billion project.

Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners wants a judge to declare it can legally lay pipe under the Missouri River.

Lawyers are proposing a schedule under which a hearing wouldn’t be held until January 3rd.
