In response, the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux filed new motions to halt the pipeline’s construction and operation. After an initial hearing on those motions, the federal judge on the case allowed construction to proceed but will be considering the Tribes’ claims before oil will pass through the pipeline under Lake Oahe.

- Wednesday, February 8, 2017: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued an easement allowing the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline under Lake Oahe in North Dakota. In response, the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux filed new motions to halt the pipeline’s construction and operation. After an initial hearing on those motions, the federal judge on the case allowed construction to proceed but will be considering the Tribes’ claims before oil will pass through the pipeline under Lake Oahe.
- Tuesday, January 31, 2017: The Acting Secretary of the Army directed the Army Corps to comply with Trump's memo (from 1/21). This is also the date by which Energy Transfer Partners & the Justice Department must file motions in the federal case brought by Energy Transfer Partners to approve the project.
- Satuday, January 21, 2017: Pres. Trump wrote a memo declaring that the Dakota Access Pipeline is in the national interest, & that the Army Corps should consider scrapping environmental review in order to approve it.
- Friday, December 9, 2016: A federal judge denied a request by Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the pipeline, to quickly force the federal government to approve the final stage of the project, but he said he would take up the issue in the new year. Energy Transfer Partners & the Justice Department have a January 31st deadline to file motions in the case.
- Sunday, December 4, 2016: The US Army Corps of Engineers officially demanded an EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) and further review before allowing the part of the route under the Missouri River, effectively stopping further legal construction for that part. This is a huge victory! But Energy Transfer Partners is saying now they will not stop so the fight is not over. Continue to support this action.
