Selected Case Results*
Chairman David Archambault II and Councilman Dana Yellow Fat, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe: In the fall of 2016, Tribal opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) resulted in widespread protests against DAPL that drove the issue on to the national stage. In connection with the protests against the DAPL, Robins Kaplan was retained by Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault and Councilman Dana Yellow Fat to represent them after they were sued in federal court by Energy Transfer Partners (ETP). ETP obtained a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) preventing Chairman Archambault from “illegally” protesting DAPL. Robins Kaplan was successful in getting the TRO dissolved and the lawsuit against Chairman Dave Archambault and Councilman Dana Yellow Fat dismissed.
