ND Supreme Court Rules Against Dunn County

Mar 7, 2017

Lower-court ruling upheld that county can’t veto state decision

The North Dakota Supreme Court has ruled that Dunn County does not have the authority to veto the North Dakota Industrial Commission in a case regarding the location of an oil and gas waste treating plant.

The court rejected the county's arguments in a lawsuit by Environmental Driven Solutions against Dunn County, challenging the county's position that its zoning regulations apply in oilfield waste treatment.
