Joseph Albright, R.I.P.

West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals Justice Joseph Albright has passed away.  Albright had recused himself from the Court’s business since last fall, battling esophageal cancer.  He was 70.

I didn’t agree with his judicial methods on many points, but I heard from various sources that he was a good man and a force for conciliation on the Court, an impression that was supported by the few and brief times that I met the man and heard him talk about the Court’s business. R.I.P.
