Environmental Activists, Dominion Energy React to Court's Decision to Halt Pipeline Construction [Video]

"Activists are applauding a federal court's order that may halt construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

On Tuesday, May 15, the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals vacated an important statement on endangered species that affects the next steps for the pipeline.

Proponents of the decision say the court has finally realized that the claim has been a problem for a long time.

"Really excited, of course, to see that we've delayed this project again," says Jennifer Lewis, the president of Friends of Augusta.

Anti-pipeline activists say this court order is a win, but that the war is not yet over.

"There's always that hesitation of people getting too excited and people thinking 'Oh, it's done we can move on to the next fight,' I just want to encourage people to stay with this fight,” says Lewis."
