Patriot Coal Corp. Bankruptcy
- Our lawyers served as Special Assistant Attorneys General in both Patriot Coal bankruptcy cases, the first in the Southern District of New York and Eastern District of Missouri and the second in the Eastern District of Virginia. They represented the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection as well as the West Virginia State Tax Department and Offices of the Insurance Commissioner. For the DEP, our lawyers helped secure a settlement valued at $50 million for the State to help ensure funding of reclamation and water treatment. On behalf of the Tax Department, our lawyers obtained dismissal of the Patriot trustee’s $5-plus million suit to recover alleged tax refunds due.
