The Montana ACLU has filed suit against four federal agencies in conjunction with the Keystone XL pipeline project. ACLU is alleging violations of the Freedom of Information Act.

The legal director says ACLU was stonewalled by the U.S. departments of Justice, Interior, Defense, and Homeland Security after asking about their training of local and state law enforcement agencies to counteract protestors.
