Sago Mine Lawsuits

The Sago Mine tragedy that killed a dozen miners in West Virginia has spawned its 13th lawsuit. Only two families have yet to file lawsuits against the International Coal Group (ICG) and other companies deemed responsible for the explosion in January 2006 that killed the miners.

The latest lawsuit in the Sago Mine disaster has been filed by the widow (Samantha) and ex-wife of miner David Lewis. The lawsuit was filed against ICG and a number of other companies that were said to be responsible for the safety of the mine. The lawsuit states that the Sago Mine had multiple state and federal safety violations recorded, plus a high accident rate.

Other similar lawsuits in the Sago Mine disaster, filed in the Kanawha County Circuit allege negligence on the part of ICG and other parties and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuits declare that ICG and others failed to maintain a safe working environment and attempted to obstruct an investigation into the disaster by the families and their representatives.

The Sago Mine lawsuits claim infliction of emotional distress on the part of ICG by waiting two hours to correct initial reports that all miners had survived. In fact, only one miner, Randy McCloy had survived the disaster after writing a goodbye note to his family. The lawsuits charges that the emotional distress caused by ICG towards the families was "extreme and outrageous".
