More DAPL troubles

The Associated Press is reporting that some North Dakota landowners are suing the developer of the disputed Dakota Access oil pipeline, Entergy Transfer Partners (ETP) “for alleged deceit and fraud in acquiring land easements.”

Energy Transfer Partners is also awaiting a decision on a lawsuit by farmers in Iowa who seek to overturn the project permit, because the Iowa Utilities Board illegally approved taking land by using eminent domain, for which the residents of Iowa receive no benefit.

In a separate Federal lawsuit in North Dakota, pipeline opponents are suing  law enforcement for excessive use of force.

And, according to Democracy Now!, “The North Dakota Supreme Court partially granted a petition that will open the door for out-of-state lawyers to represent the more than 600 people who have been arrested amid the ongoing resistance.”
