Gov. Justice Issues Statement on Justice Loughry

6/8/2018

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.  ​
