Charleston Daily Mail: “Plaintiffs fight to get Justice Benjamin off appeal”

Massey chairman Blankenship has been trying to get the law changed so he can force Starcher off his case — literally — & finally, someone’s trying to get Blankenship’s personal justice Benjamin off another of his cases.

This is so not funny. Blankenship(Massey)’s lawsuits would make him look like a crank if it weren’t for the fact that he bought one judge (I bet that’s how you become one of the “Friends of Coal”) and is planning to try to buy another to replace Starcher.

When Blankenship controls the state Supreme Court, then what? I just know he wants the governorship. We’ve become — well, remained — a poor state by being “friends of coal,” so I suppose we deserve him.
