    Appeals Court Refuses To Stop Oil In Dakota Access Pipeline

    The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit means the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota oil to a distribution point in Illinois could be operating as early as Monday, even as the tribes’ lawsuit challenging the project moves forward.

    The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes have challenged an earlier ruling by U.S. District Judge James Boasberg not to stop final construction of the pipeline, and they wanted the appeals court to halt any oil flow until that’s resolved.

    2. Note to self: never make an agreement with the USA.

    So treaty rights take a back seat to fake oil demand.
