  • "A judge declined on Thursday to approve a $660,000 settlement between the state and two coal companies for water violations that environmental groups say should bring harsher penalties. Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip J. Shepherd was asked by attorneys for the state's Division of Environmental Protection to halt the proceedings and endorse the state's settlement with International Coal Group and Frasure Creek Mining. A coalition of four environmental groups says the state went too soft on the coal operators and the fines should be in the millions. Shepherd allowed the groups to intervene in the settlement proceedings." [Business Week via Barefoot and Progressive]
