My wife and I — who live in Wausau, Wisconsin — have been sued by the Enbridge Pipeline company. We have farmland in North Dakota that has been in my family for decades. Enbridge Pipeline (the largest oil pipeline company in the world, based in Canada) wants to build a 24” pipeline to carry oil from the fracking oil bonanza of the Baaken oilfields of western North Dakota to the port city of Superior, Wisconsin where it can then be shipped and sold around the world.
Enbridge sued us. We are the defendants. Our opposition is based on our sense of ethical responsibility in fighting against climate change factors, and our belief that their taking of our land is an abusive overreach of the power of Eminent Domain.
Oral Arguments in the North Dakota Supreme Court in “North Dakota Pipeline Company v James and Krista Botsford” will be at 1:30pm, Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2016 in the North Dakota Supreme Court in Bismarck, North Dakota.
