Pipeline protester won't get more details on FBI informant

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- A Denver woman accused of shooting at law officers during protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline won't receive more information about an FBI informant she alleges seduced her and owned the gun.

A federal judge has concluded Red Fawn Fallis didn't make a convincing argument that prosecutors have more information than they've already given her.

Fallis is to stand trial beginning Jan. 29 on accusations that she fired a handgun three times at officers during her October 2016 arrest. She's pleaded not guilty to federal civil disorder and weapons charges.

Fallis' arrest was among 761 authorities made between August 2016 and February 2017, when at times thousands of pipeline opponents gathered in southern North Dakota to protest the pipeline to move North Dakota oil to Illinois.
