Prelude for accusation trials starting in West Virginia – Huntington Herald Dispatch

CHARLESTON – The unprecedented rejection process of West Virginia for four judges of the Supreme Court is starting this week with the first appearances for the Senate.

The judges or their lawyers are ordered to appear at a pre-trial conference Tuesday before the Senate, which will serve as a jury. No dates for the actual accusations of deposition have been established.

The House of Representatives voted last month to accuse the judges Robin Davis, Allen Loughry, Beth Walker and Margaret Workman. Davis retired hours later, but remains the target of accusations.

A conviction during the trial could mean that justice is disqualified in order to hold a public office.
