| Vedanta revives bid battle for Asarco |
By William MacNamara in London Vedanta, the UK-listed Indian miner, has revived a $2bn (£1.3bn) takeover battle for Asarco, the bankrupt US copper producer, ..."
"Sterlite, a Vedanta subsidiary, has joined the biggest US labour union in seeking to reverse a lower court ruling in November that returned Asarco to Grupo México, its original owner.
Grupo, lawyers for Sterlite and the union said, represented “a self-interested equity holder” that “previously defrauded the debtors [Asarco] and their stakeholders”.
In February, Sterlite and the United Steelworkers union, which represents Asarco’s miners, jointly filed an appeals brief before the appellate court in New Orleans. "
