Five temporary justices to the West Virginia Supreme Court ruled this week that they won’t recall a ruling that effectively canceled the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Margaret Workman and gave other justices grounds to avoid their impeachment trials in the state Senate.

The justices ruled on Nov. 19 the court doesn’t have inherent authority to recall its ruling, and there were no extraordinary circumstances to warrant recalling the ruling handed down on Oct. 11, four days before Workman’s impeachment trial was set to begin in the Senate.
