“Critical motion charges Trump administration circumvents law and ignores treaty rights

Published February 14, 2017

WASHINGTON — The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe today filed a major legal brief challenging the Trump Administration’s hasty approval of the controversial Dakota Access crude oil pipeline, a project in which the President and his associates have had close financial ties. The Tribe’s summary judgment asks the Court to overturn recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits of the pipeline issued without environmental review or consideration of treaty rights.

The Tribe seeks resolution of these claims on an expedited schedule that would have the issues resolved before the pipeline can go into operation.

“President Trump claims he has not received ‘a single phone call’ opposing this widely criticized project.” said Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. “Maybe he should turn the White House phones back on, because millions of people have raised their voices against this dangerous project.” (Editor’s Note: The White House Comment Line is now working from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm – EST at 202-456-1111).”
