CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — Senate Judiciary members continued work on the intermediate appeals court bill Tuesday afternoon, hearing from three witnesses: one against, one for and one from the Supreme Court – more or less neutral.

The bill is SB 341.

Christopher Morris, Supreme Court administrative counsel, told members that the court hasn’t taken a position on the bill.

Lawyer Tony Majestro is the chair of the West Virginia Association for Justice Legislative Committee. The association opposes an intermediate court, believing that the Supreme Court has sufficient time and capacity to review all appeals.

John Canfield, with the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, told the members, “We have long advocated for the creation of an intermediate court.”
