Coal Producer v. Electric Utility

I served as the Coal Producer's party-appointed arbitrator in a dispute over the propriety of a claimed force majeure under a large-volume, long-term coal supply contract, and the liability for the cost of purchasing substitute coal for coal my client did not deliver.  After prevailing on a summary judgment motion regarding some of the technical coal mining force majeure issues, the case was settled very favorably to the client.  The utility accepted the propriety of the claimed force majeure, and a major portion of the contract was renegotiated.
