SUBSCRIBE CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia lawmakers completed the extraordinary move of impeaching all four state Supreme Court justices Monday night for spending issues, including a suspended justice facing a 23-count federal indictment. The state House of Delegates voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles, setting the stage for a trial in the state Senate. Beth Walker became the final justice to be impeached when an article was approved stating all four justices abused their authority. It said they failed to control office expenses, including more than $1 million in renovations to their individual offices, and not maintaining policies over matters such as working lunches and the use of state vehicles and office computers at home. Walker had dodged impeachment earlier Monday night when lawmakers decided to overlook her $131,000 in spending on office … [Read more...] about All of West Virginia’s Supreme Court justices impeached over spending

The second justice on Pennsylvania’s top court to face a legal ethics case over distasteful emails thought he had reached a deal with the state Judicial Conduct Board.But in a Thursday hearing, the Court of Judicial Discipline refused to let lawyers for either side talk about the pact or put details on the record. It said only agreed facts were sought, not whether Justice J. Michael Eakin violated ethics rules or, if so, what punishment the parties thought appropriate, the Associated Press reports.Attorney Bill Costopoulos, who is representing the 67-year-old Eakin, said afterward that his client is angry, and appropriately so.“We were brought here to Pittsburgh on 48 hours’ notice, with a written deal, and we’re not allowed to talk about it,” he stated.It makes no sense for his client to stipulate to agreed facts prior to a trial scheduled at the end of March, if the stipulation isn’t part of a deal, Costopoulos said.Meanwhile, little is disputed … [Read more...] about Ethics court blocks deal over Pennsylvania supreme court justice’s email
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia lawmakers have begun the rare process of deciding whether impeachment proceedings are necessary just days after a state Supreme Court justice was charged in a 22-count criminal indictment. The House Judiciary Committee met without taking action Tuesday. Earlier the House of Delegates voted to have the committee investigate any justice but decided against setting a deadline. Justice Allen Loughry pleaded not guilty in federal court last week. He was suspended over allegations he repeatedly lied about using his office for personal gain. The committee heard from former delegate Mark Harman, who was involved in impeachment proceedings against state Treasurer A. James Manchin in 1989. The House impeached Manchin after the loss of $279 million in state investments, but he resigned before the state Senate took up the measure. … [Read more...] about West Virginia lawmakers mull court justice impeachment
