Company won, survivor lost

That's about the bottom line of this grisly Black Lung benefits case decided today by the Fourth Circuit, which overturned the decision of the Benefits Review Board to award death benefits. Judge Williams and Senior Judge Hamilton joined in a per curiam opinion for the Court, Judge Motz dissented. The lawyers were Tim Gresham of Penn Stuart for the company, Terry Kilgore, Bobby Belcher, and Joe Wolfe from the Wolfe Williams & Rutherford firm for the claimant.
