Federal judge hands down preliminary injunction against Rosebud Mining Co. in Pennsylvania

ARLINGTON, Va. - The U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration today announced that a federal judge with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania has issued a preliminary injunction against Rosebud Mining Co. In a federal lawsuit filed on Dec. 30, 2010, MSHA claimed that personnel at the company's Mine 78 in Somerset County, Pa., and Tracy Lynne Mine in Armstrong County, Pa., provided advance notice of federal inspectors' arrival, which violates Section 103(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977.

  1. This 10 yrs Miner (now 2+ years Representative of Miners) has seen the failure of MSHA and FMSHRC-ALJ to uphold Federal Mine Safety & Health Act (Public Law 95-164)Miner protective provisions, as evidenced in Pro Se 105C Discrimination case(copies of case related docs available from me 661 242-3000), and audio recording of FMSHRC’s “open meeting” (Docket No. WEST 2006-568-DM) available at: – refer: “October 7th, 2010” – “Audio of Meeting”.
