Cancer in the WV Supreme Court

Justice Larry Starcher did the honorable thing by stepping down from cases involving Massey Energy. He takes some serious swipes at Blankenship and Brent Benjamin that are worth reading.

Bruce E. Stanley, a Pittsburgh lawyer who represents Caperton, said Friday, “How Justice Benjamin can ignore the obvious and continue to sit on this case, especially as the acting chief justice with its power of appointment, is disturbing and inexplicable.”

It’s hard to know whether Benjamin is clueless or doesn’t give a shit. One hopes he’s not downright crooked.
