County Suffers Setback In Megaload Lawsuit

Judge Ray Dayton dismissed a claim yesterday that Montana transportation officials violated the state constitution when they approved an oil company’s plans to haul oversized refinery equipment through Montana to Canada’s oil sands. I spoke with Missoula County Commissioner Michelle Landquist on Wednesday afternoon about Judge Dayton’s decision. That interview in it’s entirety is attached.

Judge Dayton also ruled Tuesday that the county and three environmental groups can pursue their other claim that the Montana Department of Transportation broke state environmental laws by approving the shipments without properly analyzing the effects on the environment.
