BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The lawsuit filed by the Dakota Access Pipeline developer against Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman David Archambault and four others has been dismissed by a federal judge.

Dakota Access LLC filed the complaint last year against Archambault and others, seeking restraining orders and monetary damages.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland says the company failed to show that the alleged losses caused by each defendant exceeded $75,000, which is required for a lawsuit to be valid in federal court.
