“Earthjustice is representing the Menominee Tribe in both federal and state court. The Tribe is challenging the wetland permit in a Michigan administrative law proceeding, and that contested case is underway. The Tribe is also challenging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to not be the primary permitting authority for this project, as is required under federal law. The next step for the federal challenge is in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, where the Tribe will present oral argument on September 5, 2019.”
