Michigan signals intent to appeal decision keeping Line 5 dispute in federal court

Michigan’s chief law enforcement officer isn’t quite ready to give up on getting the dispute over the cross-border Line 5 pipeline remanded back to state court.

Attorney General Dana Nessel, whose strategy hinges on getting Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s bid to shut down the Enbridge-owned pipeline heard at the state level, wants to appeal last month’s decision to keep it in federal court.
