Tesoro Sues County

The Tesoro Pipeline Company has filed a federal lawsuit against Summit County, seeking to nullify the ordinances the county passed in June, attempting to regulate pipeline construction.

The lawsuit filed this week claims the county's new laws intend to impede or prevent Tesoro's proposed pipeline, and it says the ordinances are preempted by federal regulations. Rick Brough has more.
