Federal Mediation Ends Without Settlement - Send Case Back to State Court

With No Settlement, Federal Court Must Now Act Urgently on Line 5 Case.

U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff should now do what should have been done last March. With nearly six months of fruitless mediation ending in a report today of no settlement, Judge Neff must act with new urgency and allow the State of Michigan to make its strong case in Ingham County Circuit Court for confirming Gov. Whitmer’s decision to end a Line 5 easement agreement that Enbridge has repeatedly and irresponsibly violated. The court mediator's report today saying there is no settlement with Enbridge in the Line 5 case should mean the end of mediation and the beginning of action by the court to allow the governor to protect the Great Lakes.
