I need a 5-page paper answering questions from Part I, of the Buffalo Creek Disaster. To answer these questions, you must have access to the book, or knowledge of the book.
1. What were the actual facts which gave rise to the Buffalo Creek disaster?
2. What was the relationship between Buffalo Creek Mining Company and Pittston Co.?
3. Was this lawsuit proper in West Virginia? In a Federal Court? What difference did it make whether the case ended up in Federal or State court?
4. Explain the meaning of diversity jurisdiction. Why was the corporate veil issue so important?
5. Take note of the discussion of depositions, damages and mental suffering.
