The Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in an appeal of a jury’s verdict in a case that pits a small coal operator against the state’s largest, Massey Energy.  If the jury verdict is upheld, Massey could have to pay more than $75 million in damages. The dispute has raged for more than 10 years. As Anna Sale reports, the latest chapter played out against the backdrop of a divisive Supreme Court election and debates over the fairness of the state’s judicial system.
