Keystone XL Pipeline-South Dakota

South Dakota high court dismisses appeal against Keystone XL


The Associated Press - June 14, 2018

PIERRE, S.D. - South Dakota's Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal from opponents of the Keystone XL oil pipeline because the justices say a lower court lacked jurisdiction to hear their cases.

Groups fighting TransCanada Corp.'s pipeline appealed a judge's decision last year upholding regulators' approval for the pipeline to cross the state.

But the high court said in a Wednesday ruling that justices didn't "reach the merits of the case" because the lower court lacked jurisdiction to hear foes' appeal of the Public Utilities Commission's decision.

Attorneys for appealing groups didn't immediately return telephone messages requesting comment. TransCanada didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

The project would move crude oil from Canada across Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines feeding refineries along the Gulf Coast.
