The Plaintiff, a former Regional Jail inmate, had filed suit against three Regional Jail Correctional Officers alleging various violations of her civil rights.

The Plaintiff, then an inmate in the custody of the WVDOC, escaped from the custody of the WVDOC on November 15, 2013 and remains at large.

The Circuit Court held that the Plaintiff had effectively abandon her case, set for a January trial, by escaping from WVDOC custody and thereby preventing her from prosecuting her civil case.

Vaughn Sizemore successfully defended Clay Heating in the magistrate court trial of Burchett v. Clay Heating in Raleigh County.

The plaintiff alleged faulty installation of a heat pump and claimed increased electric bills as a result of the errors.

The defense successfully showed the plaintiff’s personal repairs on his property resulted in the increased electric bills, not the installation of the heat pump.

John P. Fuller and Suleiman Oko-ogua obtain a favorable ruling from the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals dismissing an appeal filed by the Plaintiff is Connard v. Cochran.

The Plaintiff had filed the same lawsuit against former Correctional Officer Cochran on three separate occasions.

The first two lawsuits were dismissed without prejudice.

While the initial suit was protected by the “Saving Statute” the statute would not serve to preserve the claim following the dismissal of the second lawsuit.

The Order of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals dismissing the Plaintiff’s Appeal effectively ended the litigation against Mr. Cochran.

Best wishes to everyone from your friends at Bailey & Wyant, PLLC for a safe and Happy New Year!!!
