The divorce case spilled over, too.
In 2000, Yoder and both Chafins - who run a firm together in Mingo County - filed court papers that suggested wrongdoing by Davis and The Segal Law Firm. Davis worked at the firm with her husband, Scott Segal, before she joined the court. At the time, Davis told one newspaper she was "not going to cower to a bully."
The Segal firm said the Yoder-Chafin filing was retaliation against Davis for her private legal work for Lewis in the divorce case. Davis recused herself from matters related to the divorce after she was elected to the court in 1996.
Despite all this, Davis, Yoder and Tish Chafin all say they can work together professionally if they are elected to the court.
At least one of the three will win a 12-year term this year. Republican Allen Loughry is also seeking a seat on the court.
Loughry was not involved in the divorce-related cases, though he's currently Workman's law clerk. Workman did not respond to a message seeking comment.
"The events in this story occurred over a decade ago," Tish Chafin said in a statement. "Since then Justice Davis and I have attended social functions at each other's homes on a number of recent occasions. My husband and I held a fundraiser at our home for Justice Workman when she was reelected to the court four years ago, and my children will be in her daughter's wedding party. This same daughter also worked for my husband in his Senate office."
She added, "The voters deserve a discussion of those issues - not stories from the past."
One of the issues in Chafin's campaign has been judicial recusals. Since the run-in with Workman, Sen. Chafin proposed bills that would allow other Supreme Court justices to overrule a justice who refused to step down from a case - a plan similar to what Tish Chafin now backs.
Yoder, likewise, said he didn't hold any grudges.
"I just think it's like a red herring that people throw up," Yoder said.
Yoder said he's visited "amicably" with Workman.
"When I meet Justice Davis, I'm always very cordial with her and she's always cordial with me," Yoder said.
Davis said the divorce case was a long time ago and she had "zealously" represented her client, Lewis, in the divorce.
Davis said she's worked with 13 different justices in her 15 years on the court.
"I think anybody that knows me knows that I conduct myself in a professional manner and that ethics and morals are the most critical component of my being," Davis said.
