"Appeals Court To Review Halt In Louisiana Pipeline Work"

"BATON ROUGE, La. — A federal appeals court has scheduled a hearing next week to review a judge’s order that halted construction of a crude oil pipeline in a Louisiana swamp.

Bayou Bridge Pipeline LLC asked the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for an “emergency stay” that would lift the suspension of construction work while it appeals the judge’s ruling.

A three-judge panel from the court is scheduled to hear to arguments on that request next Tuesday."
