John Pogline: Coal mine confusion
May 22, 2015
To the editor
Excuse my ignorance, but it has always been my understanding that our constitution guarantees a fair trial. So explain to me how Colowyo and Trapper Mine got a fair trial from a judge who is self-proclaimed environmentalist and one who stated in many news articles, each before the trial started, that he was going to rule against both mines. I thought judges were supposed to be impartial.
Going to show my ignorance again. It has been my understanding that to collect damages in a lawsuit, you have to prove you were damaged. That did not happen in this case. But if it works for him, it should work for me the next time I go to Denver and file a law suit against Denver because they put up all those tall buildings that block my view of the mountains.
