The Seoul Central District court had already dismissed an Elliot demand to prevent a July 17 Samsung shareholders' meeting called to approve the proposed mergerA South Korean court on Tuesday rejected a US hedge fund's request to block the sale of treasury stocks by construction firm Samsung C&T, clearing the path for the $8.0 billion merger of two Samsung affiliates. The planned merger, which would see Cheil Industries acquire Samsung C&T Corp through an all-stock deal, is the latest in a series of moves by Samsung's founding Lee family to boost control over the conglomerate ahead of a generational power transfer. The US hedge fund, Elliot Associates, which holds a 7.12 percent stake in Samsung C&T, has opposed the merger, arguing that it "significantly undervalues" the construction firm's stock.

Faded sign welcomes drivers to Williamson, West VirginiaBy Valerie Volcovici WILLIAMSON, WV (Reuters) - With coal trains chugging past in the distance, Jack Perry watches as his wife, Margie, plants row upon row of Hungarian pepper seedlings in the community garden that residents of this West Virginia coal town call the "Garden of Eatin'."     "The peppers they sell at the stores don't taste anything like this," says Perry, a retired coal worker. Unlike their neighbors in Kentucky, where there have been state-sponsored economic transition efforts, West Virginians have been largely left on their own to respond to coal's decline.
