Speaker Armstead Statement on Justice Allen Loughry

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, today issued the following statement regarding the accusations made against state Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry.

“Given the serious accusations detailed in the Judicial Investigation Commission’s complaint – particularly the charge that he did not answer questions truthfully while under oath to this Legislature – I believe the time has come for Justice Loughry to put the best interests of our state first and resign,” Speaker Armstead said.

“This situation has cast a pall over our state’s highest court and undermined the public’s confidence in our judicial system. It’s time to begin repairing that damage.”
