We had previously posted comments about dissents in cases from the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals that were, to put it mildly, rather pointed in their criticism of justices in the majority. The New York Times (courtesy of Abovethelaw) reports allegations of an potentially improper relationship between one of the majority justices and a key player in the litigation that led to the dissent. This situation is worth watching.
There appears to be a problem with the link to the earlier post-- it is from December 22,2007 under the title "Dissents With Dignity". (Mike Frisch)
