BISMARCK, N.D. - Complaints have been made against North Dakota judges who say out-of-state lawyers are no longer needed to represent Dakota Access pipeline protesters.

Judges who have been handling the cases say those lawyers aren't needed because no new cases have been filed.

On the other side of things, those who are against the move say there's still too much unfinished business for appointed attorneys to handle.

Supreme Court Clerk Penny Miller says she expects the court to take up the matter within the next couple of weeks.
