With their costly project in limbo, the wealthy backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline are seeking to dismiss an appeal filed by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The tribe filed the appeal after a federal judge, back on September 9, refused to halt construction of the controversial project. The decision was a setback for the #NoDAPL movement but it set the stage for the denial of an easement for the final portion of the pipeline in North Dakota.

The appeal also led to a temporary injunction on September 16 that prevented work near Lake Oahe, where the final portion is located. But after the order was lifted on November 9, Dakota Access quickly resumed construction with the hopes of completing the pipeline.

As a result, Dakota Access believes the tribe's appeal is "moot." Since the pipeline is all but complete except for the crossing at Lake Oahe, there's nothing left for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to resolve, the firm's attorneys argue.

"The tribe concedes that this 'appeal from the denial of preliminary injunctive relief' has been 'mooted,'" a response filed on Monday reads.

The tribe's attorneys indeed conceded that point in a filing dated December 2, before the announcement on the easement two days later. But they are asking the D.C. Circuit to vacate, or erase from the record, the September 9 decision that sparked the appeal because they say Dakota Access shouldn't have kept working on the pipeline.

"DAPL’s unilateral actions have deprived the tribe of the opportunity to test the district court’s legal findings," the filing stated.

Dakota Access, unsurprisingly opposes the tribe's request. But the Obama administration doesn't think the September 9 decision should be vacated either.

However, all three parties agree on one big point -- the construction at issue in the case has been completed. "Therefore, no relief left for the court to grant, and the tribe’s motion and this appeal are moot," attorney James A. Maysonett of the Department of Justice wrote in a December 8 filing.

In a footnote, Maysonett noted that the easement for the crossing at Lake Oahe was denied on December 4. But he said the "decision has no bearing on this appeal because the tribe sought to enjoin construction that is now complete and thus cannot be affected by the Army’s decision."

The mutual agreement on a key issue could convince the D.C. Circuit to dismiss the case without further action. The court in fact anticipated going that route by closing the door on additional briefs, including ones that other tribes and Indian organizations were hoping to submit as part of a "strong and unified voice."

But now that the Obama administration heeded Indian Country's call to deny the easement and conduct a new and more thorough environmental review, tribes are focusing their attention on that effort, especially due to uncertainty surrounding the incoming administration of Republican president-elect Donald Trump.

"We've denied the easement for the crossing for DAPL. We're going to start the NEPA process soon," Charles "Chip" Smith, the Assistant for Environment, Tribal and Regulatory Affairs from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, told the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights at a hearing last Friday. He was referring to the National Environmental Policy Act, the federal law that will guide the upcoming review.

The D.C. Circuit heard arguments in the #NoDAPL lawsuit on October 5, which was an unusual move in and of itself. The temporary order against construction was unprecedented for an Indian law case.

Despite lacking the easement at Lake Oahe, Dakota Access is asking a lower court judge to authorize work at the site. A hearing is anticipated in early February, later than the firm was seeking.
