U.S. DISTRICT COURT in Anchorage awarded 16 fisher men more than $2.5 million in damages stemming from a July 1987 oil spill. Trinidad Corp.'s Glacier Bay tanker spilled about 800-5,000 bbl of oil into Cook Inlet when it ran aground.

A second phase of the lawsuit will determine if the defendant owes punitive damages.
