Federal judge rules suit against U.S. Steel state issue

The Bessemer DA says that this is dangerous and why USS coils keep falling off of trucks and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages and is suing them in Bessmer Division circuit court.

US Steel doesn’t want anything to do with state court; in fact, they’re disgusted that their former serfs are rebelling and want the case removed to Federal court where they’ll get a friendlier hearing. The Federal judge says no dice, you have to go to Bessemer. Bummer for them.
