Miner Vale says Brazilian judge suspended lawsuit against companies for Samarco accident

SAO PAULO, July 18 (Reuters) - Vale SA on Tuesday said a Brazilian judge suspended a lawsuit over the miner Samarco Mineração SA’s dam collapse in November 2015.

In a securities filing, the company said the judge’s decision on Monday did not change the terms of a court decision that extended the deadline for Samarco parent companies Vale SA and BHP Billiton PLc to negotiate a settlement to Oct. 30. (Reporting by Tatiana Bautzer; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
