Coal Industry Pension Fund Files Suit against Peabody Energy Corp. and Arch Coal Inc. over an Alleged $800 Million in Liabilities

A coal industry pension fund has filed suit against Peabody Energy Corp. and Arch Coal Inc. over an alleged $800 million in liabilities related to Patriot Coal Corp.'s bankruptcy. The suit was filed in Washington, D.C., District Court by the United Mine Workers of America 1974 plan. Patriot was created from assets that Peabody and Arch once owned. The company, which earlier in 2015 moved its headquarters from Creve Coeur to Scott Depot, West Virginia, filed for bankruptcy in May, and as part of its restructuring plans to exit the United Mine Workers pension. The pension plan is arguing in its suit that a principal purpose for creating Patriot was for Arch and Peabody to evade or avoid their obligations to the 1974 Pension Plan.
