AG Nessel Responds to Enbridges Attempt to Remove Line 5 Suit to Federal Court

LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel released the following statement on Enbridge filing to remove Nessel v. Enbridge Energy to federal court from Ingham County Circuit Court:

"This is an outrageous maneuver by Enbridge that flies in the face of federal law, which clearly establishes the process to remove a suit must be initiated within 30 days. We will address this flagrant attempt to undermine that process in court and remain fervently committed to our belief that the fate of Michigan's greatest natural resources should be determined in a Michigan court. Our residents deserve more than a company who seeks to profit from our natural resources while at the same time attempting to evade legal review of their actions by our state's courts."
