An Associated Press review of court records found that since the beginning of 2012, there have been at least five lawsuits â¿¿ one in federal court â¿¿ that seek unpaid bills in the three Kentucky counties where Justice has mining operations. Two more actions in Tennessee federal court and two in Wise County, Va., filed since August of 2011 also sought unpaid bills or debts owed as part of a contract. Four of those nine legal claims, which in total exceed $1 million in alleged debts, have been settled for undisclosed amounts.Aside from those debt claims, a handful of other pending lawsuits seek to settle disputes over Justice's acquisition of mining lands in Kentucky and elsewhere.
