John Roberts and the UMWA contempt fines case

The Roanoke paper reports here that Supreme Court nominee John Roberts worked with lawyers from Woods Rogers on the case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court over the $50 million in contempt fines that were imposed against the United Mine Workers by then-Judge McGlothlin of Russell County in connection with the Pittston strike.

The case was Mine Workers v. Bagwell, 512 U. S. 821 (1994).
