West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Suspended

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry has been suspended from the bench over allegations that he repeatedly lied and used his public office for personal gain.

In an order from the high court on Friday, Loughry was suspended without pay and barred from hearing any civil or criminal matters during a judicial disciplinary process.

This week, the state Judicial Investigation Commission filed a 32-count complaint with the court that alleges Loughry “made false statements with the deliberate attempt to deceive” concerning his involvement in the renovation of his office. He also failed to tell other justices about a federal subpoena, had furniture moved from his Capitol office to his home and improperly used state vehicles for personal use.

A message left in Loughry’s office Friday was not immediately returned.
