Following months of negotiations, all of the parties in the civil lawsuits arising from the August 2007 Crandall Canyon Mine disaster have reached a settlement. The families of those killed and injured in the mine filed suits, all of which are included in the settlement. Back in 2007, six miners were trapped when an area of the Crandall Canyon coal mine collapsed near Huntington in Emery County. Days later, three rescuers died trying to reach the trapped miners. The bodies of those trapped inside were never recovered, and the mine was later permanently shuttered. UtahAmerican Energy Inc. is the parent company of the mine operator, Genwal Resources Inc. Genwal Resources is a subsidiary of Ohio-based Murray Energy Corp. Edward Havas, a lawyer from Salt Lake City, represented the Plaintiffs in this litigation and did a very good job.
