North Dakota is demanding $38 million from the federal government to reimburse the state for costs associated with policing protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
An administrative claim was filed on Friday against the Army Corps of Engineers, saying the agency allowed protesters to illegally camp for months on federal land.
If the claim isn’t paid or settled in six months, the state says it will sue in federal court.
761 arrests were made by police during the occupation of the pipeline from August 2016 to February 2017.
The pipeline began moving oil a year ago, but American Indian tribes are still fighting it in court.
