In the News Today – January 18, 2018

West Virginia Senators Ryan Ferns and Patricia Rucker introduced a bill that would create a new intermediate court of appeals, the West Virginia Record reports.

If passed, the bill would require the court to open on July 1, 2019, and would require Gov. Jim Justice to make initial appointments by July 1 of this year. According to the article, Senate President Mitch Carmichael said creating a new court would help resolve cases faster, rather than forcing all appeals to the state Supreme Court.

The creation of a new court has been discussed since 2009, when a commission established by former Gov. Joe Machin proposed the idea. West Virginia is one of only nine states without such a court.
