Another hurdle for the Dakota Access pipeline, as a federal judge today orders it to shut down until experts conduct more environmental review. Back in April, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg said a more extensive review was necessary than the environmental assessment that was done. Today, the judge decided the pipeline must be shut down, even though it has been carrying oil for three years and the disruption will be significant. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe continued its litigation against the pipeline even after the oil started flowing from North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa into Illinois.
