North Dakota regulators say a private security firm hired by the developer Dakota Access pipeline operated in the state without a license and has continued doing so since being denied one.

North Dakota's Private Investigative and Security Board is suing to block North Carolina-based TigerSwan's armed workers from continuing to monitor the pipeline system.

The board also is seeking unspecified administrative fines and attorney fees from the company for operating without a license, a misdemeanor under state law.
