Coal Mining Fight Makes Strange Bedfellows: Environmental Clinic and Civil War Group Threaten to Sue
On behalf of the Austin Civil War Roundtable and other citizen groups, the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic has served a formal Notice of Intent to sue the Dolet Hills Lignet Mine for a violation of the Clean Water Act. The Dolet mining permit authorizes mining across several thousand acres of the Civil War battlefield in Mansfield, Louisiana.
The Mansfield Battlefield was the site of an important 1864 fight between Union and Confederate troops. The Plaintiffs argue that the site contains important historical artifacts and unmarked human burial sites. Learn more about the controversy by reading the notice and press release on the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic website.
