Dakota Access Pipeline: Standing Rock Seeks Injunction From Court, Shutdown From Biden

Whether the Dakota Access Pipeline continues to operate is now a question for President Joe Biden, as well as District of Columbia federal courts.

The D.C. Court of Appeals has ruled that the pipeline is operating illegally without a full environmental impact study.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has asked a D.C. Circuit judge to issue a permanent injunction. And the tribe is also asking the new president to shut the pipeline down.
