BNSF Railway must pay nearly $400 million to a Native American tribe in Washington state.

A federal judge ordered the payment after finding the company intentionally trespassed by repeatedly running 100-car trains carrying crude oil across the tribe’s reservation. U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik initially ruled last year that the railway deliberately violated the terms of a 1991 easement with the Swinomish Tribe.
