Here’s to the Scrappy Little Underdogs. Anti-Megaloads fight wins in court.
This just in from MT megaload lawsuit plaintiff attorney Tom France: “Two months after the hearing on our motion to preliminarily enjoin Imperial Oil from moving massive components across Montana highways to the Alberta tar sands, the Montana District Court just issued an order granting our motion and halting the project. The court held that the Montana Department Transportation violated the Montana Environmental Policy Act by failing to consider alternative routes, failing to consider decommissioning the highway modifications needed for the project and failing to conduct an independent evaluation of the proposal. In so doing, the Court also excused us from any need to post a bond for potential damages to Imperial.”
