New West Supreme Court Chief Justice
(2008-01-09)
Chief Justice Elliott "Spike" Maynard, W.V. Supreme Court
(WOUB) - West Virginia Supreme Court Justice
Elliott "Spike" Maynard is now at the helm of the state's highest
court.

Maynard began his yearlong term as chief justice on Jan. 1.

He was unanimously elected by his colleagues during a 2006 conference
at which Robin Davis was selected to serve as chief justice last
year.

Previously chief justice terms were determined by a rotation
system.

Maynard, who also served as chief justice in 2000 and 2004, says he'll continue to fine-tune technology in the courts.

He is up for re-election to the court this year.
