Lawsuits Coming in Mingo County
The lawyer for the husband and wife allegedly wronged by Mingo Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury and other officials said they are ready to file a list of civil lawsuits. Attorney Mike Callaghan told the Charleston Daily Mail that he sent the required notices to several public agencies informing them of planned lawsuits on behalf of Robert and Kim Woodruff. That includes the state Supreme Court, the Mingo County Commission, State Police and the city of Gilbert.
Federal prosecutors claim Thornsbury had an affair with his secretary Kim Woodruff and tried to frame her husband Robert for several crimes, including drug possession, larceny and assault. Thornsbury was indicted earlier this month.
