Other Ongoing Lawsuits

Four separate subsidiaries of Massey Energy – Independence Coal, Alex Energy, Goals Coal, and Marfork – are currently pursuing five independent Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (“SLAPP” suits) against 34 defendants.  These lawsuits have resulted in contempt charges being leveled at defendants who violate civil injunctions and have been argued before the West Virginia Supreme Court.  Additional information will be posted as these four state-level lawsuits progress.
