WASHINGTON, D.C. - The request for a temporary restraining order filed by a law group representing Dakota Access Pipeline protesters against North Dakota Law Enforcement using excessive force has been denied.

Federal Judge Daniel Hovland rejected the request saying that the National Lawyers Guild did not follow rule 65 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which requires that efforts were made to give notice of legal action to the defendant or give reason why a notice should not be required.

In court documents Hovland says:

"This is a fact-based case and under the circumstances, the court finds that notice to the defendants for their response is necessary."

When you file in federal court...

Ethan Allen and...

you have to notify the other party you are taking action against them so they can get a lawyer and come to court to dispute the filing. These folks are lucky they weren't held in contempt.
