Patriot Coal Corp. and Peabody Energy Corp. Settle $3.1 Million Claim, Seek Court Approval

Patriot Coal Corp. and Peabody Energy Corp. have reached a settlement over $3.1 million held by Patriot allegedly belonging to Peabody. The claims were related to third-party payments Peabody makes for health care benefits for some Patriot retirees. In an Aug. 28 filing, Patriot asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to approve a settlement and compromise between the two entities. According to the agreement, Patriot will keep approximately $2.0 million of the health care refunds they received prior to an adversary proceeding filed in late July and pay $1.1 million to Peabody. Patriot will also pay Peabody any further refunds received after the filing of the proceeding and instruct other parties to begin directly paying Peabody. Patriot, now undergoing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, was the administrator of the plan. The company plans to sell most of its assets at auction.

Judge Allows Protesters Complaint Against Peabody Energy Corp. to Proceed

A federal district judge has ruled that two protesters accusing Peabody Energy Corp. of civil conspiracy, retaliation against free speech, and connection to an unlawful arrest or seizure may proceed. Thomas Asprey and Leslie Glustrom claimed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming that Peabody gave orders to Gillette College to suppress protests at a shareholders meeting where the two were arrested after unfurling a banner in front of a building that said 'Peabody Abandons Miners'. The protesters were outside a designated speech zone when they were arrested after unfurling the banner. According to the Aug. 20 order, based on the plaintiffs' complaint, the protesters attended an April 2013 shareholders meeting without incident, but when they unfurled the banner, they were asked to go to the free speech zone. The filing said they did so without incident and had their photo taken in the zone.
