The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe recently won a major legal victory in federal court that may have the power to force the shutdown of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline.

District Judge James Boasberg ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration failed to conduct an adequate environmental review of the pipeline, after Pres. Trump ordered the Army Corps of Engineers to fast-track and greenlight its approval.

The judge requested additional briefings next week on whether the pipeline should be shut off until the completion of a full review of a potential oil spill’s impacts on fishing and hunting rights, as well as environmental justice.

The pipeline faced months of massive resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, members of hundreds of other indigenous tribes from across the Americas, as well as non-Native allies.
