CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WYMT) - The date of the next court hearing in the Blackjewel bankruptcy case was announced Thursday.

Attorney Ned Pillersdorf posted on Facebook that the next hearing will be on Thursday, September 5. It will be at the courthouse in Charleston, West Virginia at 10 a.m.

Pillersdorf said the future of the "hot goods" - the coal sitting on Harlan County train tracks for weeks - will be the subject up for discussion.

Blackjewel miners, who have been staying at the tracks day and night since they first blocked the cars of coal from leaving, say they will not leave until they get paid, no matter what the judge rules.
