A lawsuit, filed by the families of six men killed in a Utah mine cave-in, alleges the collapse occurred because the mine’s owners were harvesting coal unsafely. The suit, filed in Salt Lake City, contends that Murray Energy Corp. performed risky retreat mining last summer. As you may recall, six miners were killed in the August cave-in in central Utah. Their bodies haven’t been recovered. Three men trying to reach them died ten days after the collapse in another cave-in. The lawsuit names Murray Energy and others affiliated with the mine, including the Intermountain Power Agency and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power as defendants.
