Enviros File Suit To Block Tar Sands Pipeline

"Less than two weeks after the State Department gave the go-ahead for a major new pipeline to carry Alberta oil sands crude into the United States, a network of environmental and Native American groups filed a lawsuit to stop it.

The suit, filed today in United States District Court in San Francisco, accuses President Obama’s administration of significantly accelerating the importation of “dirty oil” from Alberta."
