CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - An ethics complaint against West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Robin Davis has been dismissed.

A report by the West Virginia Judicial Investigation Commission says the complaint was baseless.

The report says the commission found no evidence to support a finding of probable cause that Davis violated the Code of Judicial Conduct.

The Supreme Court says Davis authorized the report’s release on Tuesday. The commission dismissed the complaint on May 22.

Bill Maloney of Morgantown had filed the complaint in April. His complaint alleged that Davis failed to timely disclose any potential conflict in a nursing home wrongful death case. The complaint also alleged that Davis didn’t recuse herself from hearing the case, saying her husband had sold his law firm’s airplane to one of the defendant’s lawyers.
