Case Summary Citation
Northern Plains Resource Council v. United States Army Corps of Engineers, No. CV-19-44-GF-BMM, ___ F.Supp.3d ___, 2020 WL 1875455 (D. Mont. April 15, 2020)
Environmental activist and indigenous rights groups have challenged the validity of the Keystone XL Pipeline since its initial approval in 2010. In April 2020, less than a month after crews broke ground, the opposing groups notched a major win when the United States District Court for the District of Montana revoked a key permit for the project on the grounds that the United States Army Corps of Engineers had inadequately assessed the pipeline’s impact on endangered species.
