C. Haley Bunn Sworn in Supreme Court Thursday

Charleston, W.Va. - - C. Haley Bunn was sworn in as the newest Justice on the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals during a ceremony Thursday in Charleston.  “Justice Bunn” is the wife of prominent Charleston energy lawyer Joe Bunn, and the daughter-in-law of former WVCA Chairman and long-time Board Member Jim Bunn. 

“Haley Bunn is a wonderful West Virginia story,” said Governor Justice. “She’s a coal miner’s daughter and a daughter of Southern West Virginia who’s committed her life to serving her state and her community. She’s from Wyoming County, where the opioid epidemic hit as hard as it has anywhere in America, and she decided to devote much of her career to fighting that epidemic. Haley’s also a seasoned courtroom veteran whose experience as an elite litigator will be invaluable on our Supreme Court of Appeals.”
