RioTinto Human-Rights Case Referred to Mediator
I stumbled upon this:
(CN) – Over the objections of two judges, the 9th Circuit on Tuesday asked a judge to „explore the possibility of mediation“ for a lawsuit accusing mining company Rio Tinto of inciting a 10-year civil war on the island of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea.
An 11-judge panel in San Francisco sent the human-rights case to 9th Circuit Judge Edward Leavy for possible mediation. The panel gave him 28 days to decide if mediation should proceed or if the case should return to the full court.
