CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The acting administrator for the West Virginia Supreme Court on Sunday defended the justices against offenses they were impeached for last month.
During a meeting of the post-audits subcommittee during legislative interim meetings Sunday, Barbara Allen, acting administrator for the West Virginia Supreme Court, said that justices were overpaying senior status judges to keep courthouses open.
She also said that the cost of renovations to justices’ chambers might not have been as high as reported, citing a $370,000 invoice that was labeled “justices’ chambers” that actually included the cost of renovations to other areas as well.
