Husch Blackwell Partner Brian Hendrix published an article with Rock Products where he gave a few of the most glaring examples of what he describes as “embarrassing paper.”
We often refer to an MSHA citation or order that is factually or legally without merit as “bad paper.” Bad paper is usually the product of a mistake, misunderstanding, miscommunication, etc. Instead, this column is about “embarrassing paper.” As Brian sees it, “there’s bad paper, and then there’s embarrassing paper. Embarrassing paper is a citation or order that does little to advance miner safety and health.”
