9th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed a challenge to Keystone pipeline, ruling  case was no longer active due to Trump’s revocation of the permit. In March, Trump issued a new “presidential” permit for Keystone to spur construction of the pipeline.

"Keystone is a disaster waiting to happen; we will not stop fighting this misuse of power to disregard courts and environmental laws. We will explore all legal avenues to stop this pipeline from ever being built and endangering our communities and climate,” said Jackie Prange, senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Mark Hefflinger, communications director for Bold Alliance: “Tribal Nations will fight in the courts, despite ignoring our voices and environmental laws in favor of the Trump's attempt to fast-track an export pipeline that threatens our land, water and climate. We know this ten-year battle is far from over."
