NPR story on West Virginia Supreme Court

Note: Assistant News Director Anna Sale produced this story for National Public Radio. It aired Feb. 8, 2008, on All Things Considered. 

The plot of John Grisham’s latest novel has already come to life, he says, in West Virginia. Three of the five state Supreme Court justices have been asked to recuse themselves from rehearing a case in March involving one of the biggest businessmen in the state, Don Blankenship of Massey Coal. Two of the justices have ties to him, and the third has publicly criticized the businessman.
