West Virginia Senate Passes Intermediate Appeals Court Bill

The West Virginia Senate passed a bill yesterday that would establish a new intermediate court of appeals, The Intelligencer reports.

This is the second attempt in as many years to establish a new court that would hear appeals from the trial courts. The Mountain State is one of the few states without such a court, meaning all appeals go directly to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. This has led to a backlog of cases that go unreviewed by the state Supreme Court.

The bill now heads to the House of Delegates.
