ORAL ARGUMENT BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT
IN ENBRIDGE v. DANE CO. HAS BEEN POSTPONED
.
CHECK BACK FOR THE NEW DATE!

Oral Argument Before the WI Supreme Court
Enbridge v. Dane County
Tuesday, January 22, 2019, 1:30 PM

The Wisconsin State Supreme Court has agreed to review the case of Enbridge v. Dane County. The case involves whether Enbridge must buy clean-up insurance for its pipeline network in Dane County. Clean-up insurance would guarantee that, if the pipeline leaks or explodes, there would be money to properly remediate damage to land, water, and other property. Oral argument in the case was originally scheduled for January 22, 2019. However, the clerk’s office has taken the case off the court’s January 2019 calendar, stating that it will be rescheduled to a later date. Stay tuned!

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment

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.

Community Energy

The Community Energy Campaign focuses on taking responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
