Two attorneys from Dinsmore & Shohl will present two topics at the Southeast Mine Safety and Health Conference in Birmingham Nov. 5-7.

The attorneys, Max L. Corley III and Jason Nutzman, will speak to mine operators, contractors and safety personnel for Mine Safety and Health Administration actions.

The presentation also will discuss strategies for the company when faced with miners' discrimination complaints.

Corley and Nutzman also will provide updates about recent commission and Administrative Law Judge decisions.
