CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A coal company owned by Gov. Jim Justice’s family will have to start making payments on a settlement, a judge ordered Wednesday.
The company, Justice Low Seam Mining, Inc., will have to pay about $478,000 owed to Virginia Drilling Co. in 10 days, Kanawha Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit ordered Wednesday.
Lawyers for both companies were back in Kanawha County Circuit Court on Wednesday more than a year after the companies entered into an agreement. According to a complaint filed in August 2017, the Justice company owed Virginia Drilling Co. about $1.3 million for goods and services for the company’s mining operations.
