MOUNDSVILLE – Two Cameron residents are suing a coal mining company over claims that mining operations damaged their home.
Mark R. Lucey and Cathy J. Lucey filed a lawsuit June 5 in Marshall Circuit Court against Consol Pennsylvania Coal Co. (CPCC).
CPCC operates the Baily Mine in Marshall County, which partly passes underneath the Lucey property at 668 Burley Hill Road in Cameron. Beginning on April 24, 2013, and continuing through June 9, 2013, longwall mining in the Baily Mine caused subsidence damage to the Lucey residence, the claim states.
Despite attempts at negotiation, no repairs or compensation have occurred, and no resolution has been achieved. The Lucey residence remains damaged, according to the complaint.
The Luceys seek damages of more than $100,000, including attorney and expert witness fees.
The plaintiffs are represented by attorney David C. Hook of Hook & Hook in Waynesburg, Pa. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Mark Karl.
Marshall Circuit Court case number 15-C-102
