Abstract The Standing Rock Sioux’s effort to enjoin the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers’ permitting of an oil pipeline was stifled by the United
States District Court of the District of Columbia. In denying the
preliminary injunction, the court held that the Tribe failed to show that
the Corps violated the National Historic Preservation Act, and that the
Tribe’s belated effort to litigate was futile after failing to participate in
the consultation process.
