W.Va. High Court Rules Again in Case That Led to Supreme Court Judicial Recusal Ruling
A multimillion-dollar coal contract dispute that went to the U.S. Supreme Court took its latest turn Thursday with another ruling in favor of Massey Energy. For the third time, West Virginia's Supreme Court has overturned a $50 million jury verdict against the coal producer.
