West Virginia Supreme Court chief justice gets 4-year term

Allen Loughry has been selected to serve a four-year term as chief justice of the West Virginia Supreme Court.

This marks the first four-year term for a chief justice since 1888, the court said in a news release. Chief justices typically serve one-year terms.

On Wednesday, the court voted to change its rules and allow the chief justice to serve four years and be re-elected to subsequent four-year terms by a majority vote of the five-member court.

Loughry, a Tucker County native, originally had been selected to serve one year as chief justice on Jan. 1.

"I am deeply honored and humbled that my colleagues have placed their confidence and trust in me. I look forward to moving the court system forward in my role as chief justice for the next four years," Loughry said.

He was elected to the court in 2012 for a 12-year term. Before that, he was a senior assistant attorney general in the West Virginia Attorney General's Office from 1997 to 2003. In 2003, he began working as a law clerk at the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia, a job he held when he was elected to the court.

In 2006, Loughry published the book, "Don't Buy Another Vote, I Won't Pay for a Landslide," a nonpartisan look at West Virginia's history of political corruption.
