The developer of the Dakota Access Pipeline filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, accusing them of inciting eco-terrorism for their role in campaigning against the pipeline.

Energy Transfer, suing in U.S. District Court in North Dakota, claims the environmental groups committed racketeering and defamation that increased the cost of construction by at least $300 million.

Greenpeace led a "network of putative not-for-profits and rogue eco-terrorist groups" — including Earth First! and BankTrack, also defendants in the suit — with "criminal activity and campaigns of misinformation" against the pipeline, the suit alleges.

* Energy Transfer is represented in the lawsuit by by Kasowitz, Benson & Torres LLP, a firm founded by Marc Kasowitz, one of President Trump's personal attorneys.

The suit follows months of protests over the 1,172-mile pipeline, built to deliver Bakken shale oil from North Dakota to Midwestern refineries.






* Could some kind soul please explain to me what this has to do with the price of tea in china?
