Jim Justice Update
Some news items about West Virginia Governor Jim Justice caught our eye this week: according to outlets like Fortune, Think Progress, and local West Virginia outlets (links below), the coal tycoon is being sued for allegedly paying coal miners in bounced checks.

Regular Climate Home readers might remember this isn't the first time Justice has been called out for questionable business practice. One installment of our Reclaiming Coal investigation took a look at "temporary cessation," a loophole Justice has exploited to defer clean-up and leave mines and workers idle for years.
