The ABC News Investigation into the West Virginia Supreme Court began as an examination into the role of money in judicial elections. But the reporting took an unexpected turn when ABC News made a surprising discovery about one of the Chief Justice's biggest donors. The attorney had purchased a $1 million airplane from the justice's husband, just as the biggest case of his career headed to her desk. The report elicited calls for a state ethics investigation. And it revived debate about the role of money in judicial campaigns, and the risk of conflicts between judges and the parties before them.
