City of Marmet v. Hunter – PFFB&P Wins at the WVSCt

On May 14, 3018 the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals unanimously reversed the Kanawha County Circuit Court's denial of our client's motion for summary judgment based upon the statutory immunity of the City of Marmet and its police officer as governed by the West Virginia Government Tort Claims and Insurance Reform Act found at W.Va. Code 29-12A-1.  In City of Marmet v. Hunter, the Marmet police were summoned to an apartment building by a 911 telephone call reporting a noise disturbance outside the building.  Upon arriving at the building one of the two men who allegedly fatally beat the decedent spoke to the officer outside the building and assured the officer that he was leaving after having an argument.  The officer departed the scene and the decedent's body was later discovered in a shallow grave in Raleigh County, West Virginia after having been apparently attacked at the apartment.
