CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Two people who Gov. Jim Justice recently appointed to temporarily fill vacancies on the state’s Supreme Court of Appeals will need to wait until later this month before they can be sworn in, state officials said.
Those two Republican appointees, former House of Delegates Speaker Tim Armstead and U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins, will only be sworn in for a very short fall term of the court. Then, voters will choose justices to fill their seats in November.
The normal fall term was pushed back from starting in September to October, and is scheduled to end on Nov. 16, according to court spokeswoman Jennifer Bundy.
