Starcher vows to remain seated in Massey case
Justice says he'll recuse self only if Benjamin does
By Tom Searls
State Supreme Court Justice Larry Starcher declined to step aside in a $240 million case involving Massey Energy and Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Thursday, saying he would only consider such a move if Justice Brent Benjamin does also.
"I will step aside following the very moment that [Benjamin] does so, should he make that decision," Starcher wrote.
WTF?! So Starcher's ethics are dependent upon the ethics of someone else? HEY! Look here you stupid fuck; you do what's right regardlesss of what anyone else does.
So, by Judge Starcher's ethics, ass long as someone else is robbing banks, it's ok for me to rob banks. When THEY decide to quit robbing banks, then I will quit robbing banks.
Yes folks, this is a WV supreme court judge talking. No wonder the rest of the world looks so favorably upon our fair state.
Should it surprise anyone that our country is so devoid of moral values and righteous ethics?
