Caperton Decision Reaffirmed

From How Appealing we learn that the West Virginia Supreme Court has reaffirmed its earlier decision in Caperton v. Massey Coal, the case in which the U.S. Supreme Court required the recusal of the Chief Justice of the state court for having taken a particularly large campaign contribution from one of the parties.  The decision this time was 4-1 (it was 3-2 in the original decision that was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court), apparently after the state court appointed a state court judge to sit in for the forcibly-recused Chief Justice.
