WV Supremes, right-to-work, and where (not) to retire

The race for the West Virginia Supreme Court

This morning's Grist (via Mother Jones) has a good article on West Virginia Supreme Court politics. Here's a sample: (Note - Grist notes that Bailey is a lawyer who has fought coal companies.)

The number of twists and turns in this contest have made the outcome anyone’s guess. In the 12 . . .

To mix some metaphors: Karma is a dish best served when it's on the other foot

Mike Myer worries that "we may have 12 years of regret"

This is from an Intelligencer editorial last June about the new non-partisan election of judges:

Funny thing about that old business of the shoe being on the other foot. Sometimes the fit is very good.

Among long-overdue changes West Virginia legislators approved this year was one involving elections for magistrates, circuit court judges and . . .

A post on the upcoming judicial election

Taking advantage of the anti-Obama sentiment in the state (even if the president has nothing to do with the Supreme Court race), the Republican State Leadership Committee's Judicial Fairness Initiative is running ads that link the president to State Supreme Court candidates Bill Wooten and Darrell McGraw.

The article tells us that Attorney General Patrick Morrisey won a settlement with Wells Fargo Bank over banking practices:

CHARLESTON — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey today announced an $8 million . . .

Local "newspapers" hatch an anti-McGraw plan

The West Virginia Supreme Court vote

Who not to vote for

The lead editorial in Saturday's Intelligencer did not endorse any candidate for the West Virginia Supreme Court. Instead, it was a 230-word editorial on the candidate we should not vote for. With the title, "One Candidate Not to Support," it was not hard to guess who that might be. Of course, it's the . . .

It's a Brent Benjamin Weekend!

As we get closer to West Virginia's election in May we are bound to read more and more about Judge Brent Benjamin. (He's a local "newspaper" favorite!) Yesterday's and today's "newspapers" got us off to a good start.

Myer begins coverage of Benjamin's re-election campaign

Benjamin probably won't get $3 million from Blankenship this time

The 2nd half of today's Mike Myer column marks the opening salvo in the Intelligencer's attempt to get State Supreme Court Justice Brent Benjamin re-elected.

Myer, without going into very many specifics, defends Benjamin from conservative criticism of a decision in which he was a part of a court majority that allowed drug addicts to . . .
