Reparations for the families of those who died building the transcontinental railroad

From: "Kaity Kao"

I'm writing a school paper and was wondering if you could help me:

1. Were there ever any reparations for the families of those (mostly Asians) who died building the transcontinental railroad?

2. Also do you know if there were any court cases brought regarding the building of the transcontinental railroad by any of those Asians?
