Michigan’s chief law enforcement official wants to appeal against a judge’s decision not to allow the Line 5 dispute to continue in federal court.
In court documents, Attorney General Dana Nessel suggests District Court Judge Janet Neff made errors in her Aug. 18 ruling.
This was when Neff refused to move the dispute back to the state court. Michigan might have a greater chance of success.
Nessel last week filed a motion indicating that she intends to file an “interlocutory appeal” while the case remains before the courts.
The motion suggests that there may be grounds to substantial disagreements on key legal issues.
Nessel argues also that the appeal could be allowed now to make sure the case does not need to go back to court.
