News

Pullin Fowler Flanagan Brown & Poe, PLLC Attorney Obtains Favorable Ruling from the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia PFFB&P member, Keith Gamble, recently obtained a favorable ruling from the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Mr. Gamble defended his client, the City of Ranson, against the Petitioners’ efforts to overturn the Trial Court’s dismissal of petitioner’s suit. Prior to dismissal, the Circuit Court had ordered Plaintiffs to show cause why their action had not been deemed moot. Instead, the Plaintiffs moved to amend to add substantive claims not previously presented. The Trial Court denied the Motion to Amend and dismissed the suit. Plaintiffs appealed the Circuit Court’s denial. The Supreme Court affirmed, finding no abuse of discretion because the facts underlying the newly raised claims were present at the time of the original complaint. The Court ruled via Memorandum Opinion rejecting the appeal and upholding the lower Court decision. Congratulations Keith!”

On March 21, 2022, the WVSCA granted a Writ of Prohibition filed by Keith Gamble on behalf of his client March-Weston Company, Inc.  The ruling clarified the much debated application of the West Virginia non-party statute, § 55-7-13d.  The ruling produced a new syllabus point that states non-parties shall be considered by juries for assessing percentages of fault in a jury trial.READ MORE
