WASHINGTON – An emergency hearing will be held tomorrow in federal district after Federal District Judge James E. Boarsberge took action on Monday. Even though it was Labor Day, a national holiday, the judge ordered the hearing after an injunction was filed on Friday by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Energy Transfer Partners deliberately destroyed sacred burial grounds near Cannon Ball, North Dakota on Saturday.

The emergency court hearing is set for Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. in Washington, D.C.

Attorney Jan Hasselman, Earth Justice, who argued the case on behalf of the tribe on August 24, 2016 was flying to Washington, D.C. when contacted on Monday afternoon for confirmation of the hearing.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
