Oral Argument Before the WI Supreme Court
Enbridge v. Dane County

Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 1:30 PM

 

The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear oral argument in the case of Enbridge v. Dane Co. at 1:30 on March 26, 2019. This is the culmination of a long battle that started with Dane Co. standing up to the behemoth pipeline company, and you won’t want to miss it!

The case involves whether Enbridge must buy cleanup insurance for its expanded Line 61 pipeline in Dane County. Cleanup insurance would guarantee that, if the pipeline leaks or explodes, there would be money to properly remediate damage to land, water, and other property. 

WHAT: Oral argument before the WI Supreme Court in Enbridge v. Dane Co.
WHEN: Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 1:303:00 (please arrive early)
WHERE:
WI Supreme Court Hearing Room, 2nd floor, East Wing of the Capitol
RSVP: https://bit.ly/2TIPxxM

At every step along the way—from the county zoning committee and board of supervisors to the circuit court and court of appeals—we’ve packed hearing rooms. This time will be no different. Please join us in demonstrating our resolve to show up every time Enbridge tries to make the case that we should be on the line for a pipeline spill.

The Divestment Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on the banks that provide funds for pipeline projects.
