BECKLEY - West Virginia billionare Jim Justice files a counter-lawsuit against companies that claim he owes them money. Beckley-based Phillips Machine Services sued seven companies owned by Justice last month in Raleigh County circuit court. Phillips and a Kentucky-based subsidiary, the Combs Group, claim the companies owe them more than one million dollars. Justice filed a counter suit on Friday for 7.5 million dollars from the plaintiffs. He says these companies should have performed services for him but never did.
