“I’m More Powerful Than Congress.”

The Bankruptcy Court in Nevada today has told miners Matt Varady and Daniel Lowe that they may not pursue their discrimination claims against Jerritt Canyon Gold, and controller Eric Sprott. The judge said he was issuing an injunction forbidding the two miners from pursuing their discrimination claims, and to prevent their case from proceeding before the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission. When the miners tried to explain their rights under the Mine Act and the legislative history, they claimed the judge told them “I’m more powerful than Congress.” We will get the transcripts as soon as possible.
