FREDONIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - An appeals court has reversed the dismissal of charges against a man who spent 10 hours inside an oil pipeline under construction in southern Michigan.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports (https://bcene.ws/1mlePdA ) Friday the state Court of Appeals ordered the case against Christopher Wahmhoff back to court.

A Calhoun County judge in February tossed charges of trespassing and obstructing police against the Kalamazoo man for the June 24, 2013, protest at an Enbridge Inc. pipeline site in Fredonia Township, near Marshall.

The protest was part of an effort to halt the Canadian company from building a new line. The site is near where a line ruptured in 2010, spilling 800,000 gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo River system.

The line runs from Sarnia, Ontario, to Griffith, Ind.
