CHARLESTON, W.Va. — What started as an attempt to review and possibly revise travel policies in the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals in 2016 turned into a sparring match via memos, witnesses said Thursday during the criminal trial of suspended Justice Allen Loughry.
Thursday was the second day of testimony that began with a line-by-line review of purchases made with state credit cards and ended with testimony from former Supreme Court justice Brent Benjamin.
Benjamin is to return to the stand for cross examination when the trial reconvenes at 9:30 a.m. Friday. U.S. District Judge John Copenhaver will issue a ruling then on whether certain court memos regarding the justices’ use of state vehicles can be published as evidence in the trial.
