MTR Trial Reset for October

You may have seen the headline: "Mining trial canceled while permits reviewed." As Ken Ward reported in a June 15 Charleston Gazette article:

"A federal judge on Wednesday canceled a trial scheduled for next week in the latest legal effort to curb mountaintop removal coal mining.

"U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers acted on a motion by the federal Army Corps of Engineers ... In a court filing, corps lawyers said the agency decided its original permit approvals "merit further review and reconsideration."

"In the case, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition and other groups hope to force the corps to begin conducting detailed studies called environmental impact statements every time the agency considers a new mining permit application.

The trial is on again, right now tentatively scheduled for October 3. Check our website, www.ohvec.org or call the office at (304) 522-0246 to confirm the trial date.
