Fighting for Justice in the Coalfields

Sanders, Cline discuss black lung litigation

It’s estimated that about 1,000 coal miners die every year from a disease commonly known as black lung.

In a recent edition of Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen welcomed Stephen A. Sanders, public interest lawyer and the Director of the Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center and Attorney John C. Cline, to discuss the latest in black lung litigation. Stephen and John discuss the correlation between coal mine dust and black lung, legislation passed to help coal miners, the rise of black lung disease in younger miners and the impact this horrible disease has on miners and their families.
