On West Virginia TV: DSCC Sues Jim Justice Over Work Schedule Amid “Ongoing Scandal” That “Justice Was Largely Absent In Job”

West Virginians across the state are seeing reporting on the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) lawsuit to demand the release of records pertaining to the Governor’s official schedule or calendar and how “Justice has faced an ongoing scandal over his work schedule.”

The lawsuit comes after Justice’s office repeatedly failed to comply with Freedom of Information Act requests for his official schedule or official calendar and the DSCC sent Jim Justice’s office a litigation hold and notice.

  • The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is suing Governor Jim Justice’s office over the release of his official schedules and calendars.

  • The Committee is demanding the release of records pertaining to the Governor’s official calendar from January 2017 up through now.

  • The lawsuit comes after the committee says it filed two Freedom of Information Act records requests for Justice’s schedules, but Justice’s general counsel told the group that none of the schedules were maintained solely for official business.

  • The DSCC said in a press release that Justice last produced these records in 2019, and they showed that Governor Justice almost never meets with his cabinet, is rarely at the capital and was largely missing at one of the most critical points of the year’s legislative session.
