State Supreme Court cancels trip to Morgantown

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state Supreme Court of Appeals will not hear cases in Morgantown next week as scheduled amid changes in the court.

The court announced on Friday that Allen Loughry was out as chief justice. Loughry was under fire following the purchase of furniture and renovations of the court chamber.

In a statement last week, Loughry said he had been cooperating with federal authorities in an investigation. He had previously contacted authorities about purchases made by court administrator Steve Canterbury.

Justice Margaret Workman will serve as chief justice through Dec. 31, 2018.
