"Judge Rules Dakota Access Study Can Move Forward"

"A federal judge on Wednesday allowed a potentially lengthy environmental review of the Dakota Access Pipeline to move forward over objections from the pipeline’s developer.

Energy Transfer Partners had asked judge James Boasberg to block an Environmental Impact Statement review of the pipeline while its lawsuit over the pipeline project moves forward.

The Army Corps of Engineers on Wednesday began the process of assessing the 1,170-mile pipeline’s impact on the environment in North Dakota, a study that could take years to finish."
