FEDERAL: "Judge OKs deal requiring Massey to pay $20 million fine"
By Michael Stevens
From Herald Leader:
A federal judge has signed off on a settlement requiring Massey Energy Co. to pay a record $20 million fine for alleged pollution violations.
The agreement approved Wednesday by U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver settles a complaint filed by the Environmental Protection Agency in May 2007. The EPA had alleged that Massey routinely polluted hundreds of streams and waterways in West Virginia and Kentucky with sediment-filled waste water and coal slurry.
