CHARLESTON – Prichard Mining is alleged to have stopped making royalty payments to mine coal on a property.

Michael Rosenbaum, Wesley Rosenbaum, Randall Kopelman and Larry Kopelman filed a complaint  in Kanawha Circuit Court against Prichard Mining Co. alleging breach of contract. 

In September of 2007, Prichard Mining entered into a lease agreement to mine and restore the subject property, according to the suit. The plaintiffs allege that beginning in 2015, Prichard continued to mine the property but stopped making payments as well as stopped communication. Prichard has denied requests for accounting and payment of the royalties in breach of the lease agreement, the plaintiffs allege. 

The plaintiffs seek monetary relief and all other just relief. They are represented by Larry Kopelman of The Kopelman & Associates Law Firm LC in Charleston.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit.
