Gay miner sues Massey subsidiary

The Charleston Gazette reports that a gay coal miner has sued a Massey Energy Co. subsidiary, alleging that co-workers in several mines have repeatedly harassed him because of his sexual orientation. In a lawsuit filed earlier this month in Kanawha Circuit Court, Sam Hall maintains that he was subjected to verbal abuse and invective and lewd gestures by his supervisors and other miners, even after he complained to management.
