Description
Don Blankenship, head of Massey Energy, ran an industry that provides nearly half of America's electric power. But wealth and influence weren't enough for him, as he set about destroying rivals, challenging the Constitution, purchasing the West Virginia judiciary, and disregarding safety standards in the company's mines -- mines in which scores died unnecessarily. Just about the only thing that stood in the way of Blankenship's tyranny over a state and an industry was a pair of odd-couple attorneys, Dave Fawcett and Bruce Stanley, who undertook a legal quest to bring justice to this corner of America. From the backwoods courtrooms of West Virginia they pursued their case all the way to the Supreme Court and to a dramatic decision declaring that the wealthy and powerful are not entitled to purchase their own brand of law.
