WV SB 275 Update and More: Is an Intermediate Appellate Court on the Horizon?

By Steven K Wellman of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/09/2020

West Virginia is one of the few states without an intermediate court of appeals that sits between civil and criminal trial courts and the State Supreme Court. In the Mountain State, the Supreme Court hears appeals from all sources, including workers’ compensation matters. Unlike civil and criminal matters, there is an intermediate court, the Workers’ Compensation Board of Review, but West Virginia Senate Bill 275 (WV SB 275) proposed to create a new court of appeals, which would have had appellate jurisdiction over most matters, including Workers’ Compensation, and it came close to realization. Although the House of Delegates ultimately voted the bill down, the proposals in the bill can inform on future efforts along this vein.

Gun License Reciprocity: Concealed Carry Laws Also Apply to Gun Trust Firearms

By Anna Melissa Price of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/04/2020

Americans are afforded the right to bear arms by the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. However, interpretations of the Amendment vary. And, until federal lawmakers pass national reciprocity legislation, gun owners must follow a patchwork of state laws on possessing and carrying firearms. Because regulations vary so widely, gun owners who are traveling across state lines must be aware of gun license reciprocity and concealed carry laws in states they plan to traverse or visit.
