Enbridge seeks court ruling on Great Lakes oil pipeline deal

TRAVERSE CITY, M.I. – Enbridge Inc. is asking a Michigan court to rule on the legality of an agreement it reached with former Governor Rick Snyder to build an oil pipeline tunnel beneath the channel linking lakes Huron and Michigan.

The Canadian company said Thursday that it is asking the Michigan Court of Claims to determine the constitutional validity of the deal.

The Court of Claims deals with civil actions filed against the state and its agencies.

Snyder, a Republican, was replaced in January by Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer. She is pushing the company to speed up its timeline for building the tunnel in the Straits of Mackinac and wants to reach an agreement by Monday.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has said a law enacted in December to implement the tunnel agreement violates the state constitution.
