By October 7, 2017 No Comments

The North Dakota Supreme Court has received more than 500 comments about a petition “to end legal provisions for out-of-state attorneys assisting criminal cases related to protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline,” reports the Bismarck Tribune. Nearly all of the comments spoke against ending these legal provisions. Commenters include “chairs of the Standing Rock and Spirit Lake tribes, the American Civil Liberties Union of North Dakota, Amnesty International and the National Congress of American Indians,” as well as approximately “150 law school faculty from around the United States.”
