March 7 A U.S. judge on Tuesday ruled against
native tribes seeking to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from
moving forward on the basis that it would prevent them from
practicing religious ceremonies, as legal options for opponents
of the project narrow.
Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia, in a written ruling, rejected the tribe's
request for an injunction to withdraw permission for the last
link of the oil pipeline under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.
