Coal Mine Permit Ruling Appealed

Environmental groups are appealing a judge's ruling on a permit allowing Peabody Energy to operate a surface coal mine in Sullivan County.

The judge found that the state failed to fully assess the impact of coal waste runoff on local waterways.

But she ruled against other claims, including that Indiana should have approved a more comprehensive individual permit for the mine.
