The late-night comedian aired a pointed segment about miner safety—and predicted the lawsuit that has just been lodged against him.

A federal judge remands the case to state court, rejecting HBO's argument that coal companies were fraudulently joined to escape diversity jurisdiction.

John Oliver's legal hell is the stuff of Hulk Hogan-fueled nightmares
John Oliver is being sued by Robert Murray, the head of a coal-based energy company and a recent subject of mockery on Oliver's Last Week Tonight. The case is set to go forward in West Virginia, where several of the companies technically suing Oliver are based.

This is bad for Oliver. Murray will enjoy home-field advantage in West Virginia despite the best efforts of the lawyers representing Oliver and HBO to move the case to federal court.

I have faith in HBO being able to get out of this or easily win it.
