Gov. Justice Issues Statement on Justice Loughry


While all of us are innocent until proven guilty, the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Loughry are extremely troubling. At the very least, this has cast a very negative shadow on the state of West Virginia.

Obviously, the Supreme Court understood the seriousness of this situation and suspended him without pay.

If the charges are accurate, I would urge Justice Loughry to resign and spare the court and state any further embarrassment.

As the impeachment process is the domain of the Legislature, I will continue to have a dialog with the leadership to determine the desire to initiate impeachment proceedings. In the event of sufficient interest, I would be open to calling a special session.  ​
