New Chief Justice has Braxton connection
Justice Tim Armstead to
lead Supreme Court in 2020

At the Court’s last administrative conference, Justice Tim Armstead was approved as Chief Justice by his colleagues on the WV Supreme Court of Appeals.
Justice Armstead grew up in Gassaway. He is a graduate of Braxton County High School and the University of Charleston and West Virginia University College of Law.
“I am honored to have the trust of my fellow West Virginians to serve on their Supreme Court of Appeals and to have the confidence of my fellow Justices to serve as Chief Justice in 2020,” Justice Armstead said.
“This year has been a year of rebuilding and restoration for our Court. Under the leadership of Chief Justice Beth Walker, our Court has worked to build a stronger, more open and accessible court. I am excited to have this opportunity to build upon that effort in 2020 and will work hard to ensure our court system continues to earn the trust of the people of our state,” Justice Armstead said.
“We owe it to the people of our state who have entrusted us with this responsibility to provide them a fair, efficient open and honest court system.”
Justice Armstead was appointed to the Supreme Court by Governor Jim Justice to fill the seat vacated by the retirement of Justice Menis Ketchum. He took office September 25, 2018, and was elected November 6, 2018, to retain the seat until the end of the term on December 31, 2020.
Armstead became Speaker of the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2015 and was re-elected in 2017. Prior to serving as Speaker of the House, he had been Minority Leader since 2006 and a member of the House since 1998. He has practiced law for nearly 30 years in West Virginia and taught Constitutional law at the University of Charleston.
Justice Armstead and his wife, Anna, live in Elkview and have one daughter, a son-in-law, and a grandson.
