The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments Nov. 16 on Tucson-based Asarco’s appeal of a judgment requiring the company to pay copper-price bonuses to hundreds of miners.

The oral arguments begin at 9:30 a.m. at the San Francisco-based appellate panel’s Pasadena, California, courthouse. A live webcast can be viewed at tucne.ws/9thcircuit, and an archived version can be viewed on the court’s YouTube channel.

The case stems from a 2014 ruling by a federal arbitrator that Asarco wrongly withheld bonuses based on copper prices to more than 700 employees. Asarco’s unions, led by the United Steelworkers, have said the unpaid bonuses total more than $10 million, plus interest.
