The United States District Court for the District of Columbia partially granted the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s motion for partial summary judgment against the Army Corps of Engineers after the Tribe alleged the violation of required environmental analysis. While the court held that the Army Corps of Engineers mostly complied with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, the court found deficiencies within its environmental analysis; the remedy is forthcoming.
