Justice Elliott "Spike" Maynard has recused himself from another case involving Massey Energy.

Maynard filed a one-paragraph notice Thursday, saying he was disqualifying himself from a case involving a second coal silo the company wants to build near a Raleigh County elementary school.

The silo is adjacent to the Marsh Fork Elementary School.

Maynard removed himself from a Boone County case involving a contract dispute between Massey and another coal company and a Brooke County case involving Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel.

Justice Brent Benjamin has declined to recuse himself, although he was the recipient of $3 million in campaign contributions from Blankenship.
