Jenners was built in 1907 as a company town, by the Consolidation Coal Company, an interest of the Rockefeller Family of New York, to house workers of its Mine No. 118. Jenners was named after its township, Jenner Township, Pennsylvania (where a brief history of the area is found on its wiki page). Joseph Darby, who in April 2004 the Pentagon credited as the lone soldier who came forward to halt and expose the Abu Ghraib prisoner-of-war abuse scandal in Baghdad, Iraq, is a native of Jenners and a graduate of nearby North Star High School. Darby received the 2005 Profile in Courage Award from the John F. Kennedy Foundation for his actions. Darby's actions spark controversy locally; Darby's family felt that the community turned against him for being the whistleblower about Abu Ghraib. In one interview, Darby said he believed only about 10% of the community supported him.

What is bus accident litigation?

Cases involving individuals who have been injured in crashes and collisions involving private or government-operated municipal bus systems. Bus accidents have a tendency to injury many people within and around the bus in a collision because the size and weight of these motor vehicles is enough to cause massive amounts of damage. When you factor in speed or adverse traffic conditions, the potential for property damage and/or loss of life is immense. People who are injured in bus accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
