(Reuters) - Energy Transfer Partners LP, which is building the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, is seeking federal court intervention to finish the project without further action from the Army Corps of Engineers, which owns some of the land where it is to be built.
Energy Transfer and partner Sunoco Logistics Partners LP said they filed a lawsuit with the U.S. federal district court in Washington DC on Monday seeking a judgment declaring a legal right-of-way to build the pipeline.
The filing comes after the Departments of the Army and Interior deferred a final decision on the controversial North Dakota section of the pipeline and highlighted concerns about the "repeated" dispossession of tribal lands.
