Mach Mining, LLC v. Secretary of Labor

<> Mach Mining, LLC v. Secretary of Labor – 1/12/16. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 14-1266. Mach Mining ("Mach") petitions for review of the final order of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission concluding that two of Mach's regulatory violations under the Mine Safety and Health Act were the result of "high negligence" and one violation was also "significant and substantial." The Panel indicates, "Mach contends these determinations were unwarranted in view of its efforts to mitigate the violations and the limited danger they posed. Because the factual findings underlying these determinations are supported by substantial evidence, we deny the petition."
