BISMARCK — A spokesman for the North Dakota Highway Patrol says a case of vandalism involving oil poured on the State Capitol on Halloween night appears to be related to the Dakota Access Pipeline protest, as those responsible left a sign saying "You can't drink oil," a popular refrain among protesters. Lt. Tom Iverson said a "decent amount" of motor oil was poured on the sidewalk, limestone walls and windows at about 9:32 p.m. around the entrance of the legislative wing on the west side of the complex.

FARGO – A judge said Thursday he will permanently block a 2011 North Dakota law that would have limited drug-induced abortions, a decision the director of the state’s lone abortion clinic hopes will “pave the way” for future challenges in a state where lawmakers have adopted four anti-abortion laws this session alone. At the conclusion of a three-day trial, Cass County District Court Judge Wickham Corwin told attorneys he will rule that all of the law’s provisions challenged by the Red River Women’s Clinic are unconstitutional.
