     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Four lawsuits have been filed against the city of Minot over property buyout disputes for a flood protection project. Minot Daily News reports that the project was prompted by a June 2011 Souris River flood that damaged or destroyed thousands of buildings in Minot. The flood caused an estimated $1 billion in damage in the region.
 
     Two of the lawsuits allege government liability, interference in business, negligence, violation of due process and inverse condemnation, which is taking without compensation. The other two complaints were filed after failed purchase negotiations.
 
     The city denies the allegations for both cases and asks the court for dismissal. It also requests the court to approve condemnation, granting the city ownership or an easement to financial interests of the owners.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House will consider legislation that would require abortion providers to inform women undergoing drug-induced abortions that it's possible they could still have a live birth if they change their mind. Abortion-rights groups claim there is no medically accepted evidence that a drug-induced abortion can be interrupted.
 
     It's the first time in six years the Republican-led Legislature has had the appetite to undertake such legislation, after several pro-life laws were struck down in the courts and two its most vocal pro-life lawmakers were ousted by voters.

    GOP Rep. Daniel Johnston says he is sponsoring the bill this session so that "women having second thoughts" are ensured they have "options." Abortion-rights groups say it amounts to "misinformation."

     STANLEY, N.D. (AP) - A manslaughter count against a Fargo man accused in the death of his girlfriend's 6-month-old son in Stanley has been upgraded to a murder charge. Authorities allege 24-year-old Cody Faltersack was alone with the child last November when emergency crews responded to a report of an unresponsive child. The boy later died at a Minot hospital of brain trauma. The murder charge carries a maximum punishment of life in prison without parole.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his ex-wife in Jamestown last year has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Authorities say 25-year-old Nicole Gututala was found shot to death in a vehicle in the parking lot of an apartment building on May 12, 2018. Twenty-seven-year-old Kevin Hoff turned himself in a short time later. He pleaded guilty to murder in November and was sentenced Thursday.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has reappointed Nick Hacker to the state Board of Higher Education and named Timothy Mihalick to fill the remaining term of a board member who quit.
 
     Hacker, of Bismarck, will serve another four-year term. He has been on the board since 2015 and is currently vice chair of the group.
 
     Mihalick, of Minot, will fill out the term of Greg Stemen, who left the board in September. That terms ends on June 30.
 
     The board has eight voting members appointed by the governor, including one student, and two non-voting members who represent faculty and staff. The board oversees the system's 11 public colleges and universities.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have concluded that the developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline has complied with a settlement of allegations it violated state rules during construction. Energy Transfer Partners was accused of removing too many trees and improperly handling a pipeline route change. To avoid fines, it was directed to plant tens of thousands of new trees and to develop an industry handbook and conduct training on properly handling route adjustments.
