Former West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Elliott "Spike" Maynard, 71, passed away Thursday night according to Metro News. The report indicates that he had been a patient at Charleston Area Medical Center's Memorial Hospital since April 6.

The former Justice served on the West Virginia Supreme Court from 1997-2008, and became Chief Justice in 2000.

Maynard lost his bid for re-election when his 12-year term expired in 2008, and unsuccessfully ran against Democrat Nick Rahall (WV-3) for Congress in 2010.
