A Duluth woman is raising money to offset court costs that she’s being asked to pay on behalf of a mining company.
Laura Gouger says she and two other plaintiffs have to pay more than $60,000 of the opposing side’s legal fees…after losing a case they brought against the Flambeau Mining Company.
“I’m very disappointed. I would say that mining companies are not held accountable for polluting public waters.”
The Flambeau mine near Ladysmith was an open pit copper and gold mine that operated between 1991 and 1999.
