A West Virginia Supreme Court justice who resigned after being impeached has filed a federal lawsuit claiming the effort to remove her was motivated by dislike of her views and judicial opinions, The ABA Journal reports. Former Justice Robin Davis filed suit Wednesday, accusing lawmakers of filing the articles of impeachment in a “nakedly partisan movie.” Davis resigned in August after the state’s House of Delegates voted to impeach her and three other justices remaining on the court. The timing of the resignation allows voters to elect her replacement in a November special election.
