14 Articles of Impeachment introduced against 4 remaining West Virginia Supreme Court Justices

West Virginia

The West Virginia House Judiciary Committee has introduced 14 articles of impeachment against all four remaining Justices of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.

Most of the impeachment articles deal with the massive and unchecked spending of nearly $4,000,000 on building renovations and lavish office furnishings such as a $32,000 blue suede couch in the office of suspended Justice Allen Loughry.

Loughry faces six articles of impeachment and Chief Justice Margaret Workman is named in five. Justice Robin Davis is named in four articles and Justice Beth Walker is named in three.

The Judiciary Committee will vote on each article and send to the full House of Delegates.

If approved by the House, the State Senate will conduct an impeachment trial and consider removing Justices from office.

This is a developing story, and we will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
