BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA – TigerSwan, the private security firm hired by the developer of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), will go on trial on October 8, 2018 for charges it operated illegally in North Dakota during the Standing Rock resistence movement.

Last June, the North Dakota Private Investigative and Security Board filed a complaint claiming TigerSwan operated without a license. TigerSwan allegedly operated even after the company was denied a permit to operate in North Dakota.

TigerSwan has faced complaints by water protectors for using excessive force during the several months of the Standing Rock movement.

The civil trial is scheduled for five days.
