Episode 46: Judicial Over-Reach on the Dakota Access Pipeline
In this week’s podcast, Simon discusses the Dakota Access Pipeline
How does this ruling affect EPD?
It would be reasonable for an appeals court (the next step in this affair) to allow a stay, because the judge who issued the ruling :
1. Used only examples of non-operating pipelines to justify his decision.
2. Might not have the legal power to order the shutdown.
3. Did not fully consider the wide-ranging economic damage that a shutdown would bring.
