CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to preserve benefits for bankrupt Patriot Coal Corp.'s active and retired miners.

U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin on Friday sided with Peabody Energy and Arch Coal.

The United Mine Workers of America filed the lawsuit last year, saying the companies set up spinoff companies to rid themselves of their benefits obligations. The lawsuit argued they were still responsible for those benefits under the federal Employee Retirement and Income Securities Act.

But Goodwin ruled the law doesn't protect a pension fund's financial stability.

UMW President Cecil Roberts tells The Charleston Gazette the union plans to appeal.

Peabody spun off Patriot in 2007, and Patriot later acquired mines that Arch spun off into Magnum Coal. Patriot declared bankruptcy last year.

The Jefferson County R-VII School District was lauded for its academic achievement today as Governor Jay Nixon visited Jefferson High School to congratulate the students and staff on the results of the Missouri School Improvement Program. The district scored a 90.4 percent rating on the 2013 Annual Performance Report. This is the tenth straight year Jefferson R-VII has been acknowledged for its academic performance. In praising the district, Governor Nixon said, "When teachers, staff, parents and the community work together to ensure a quality education for their children, we are making a real investment in the future of our economy and state.” The Governor also applauded Jefferson High School for being a Missouri A+ designated school, which allows qualified students to apply for scholarships for two years of tuition and fees at any of Missouri’s community colleges. To be eligible for the program, students must meet academic achievement standards, conduct and attendance requirements, and perform 50 hours of tutoring or mentoring service. Missouri’s high school graduation rate now ranks eighth highest in the nation.
