CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Senate passed two bills Thursday that could rework the contours of the state’s judicial system.
For one, it passed a bill that would create an intermediate court of appeals, which would hear circuit court appeals for certain cases before they reach the state Supreme Court of Appeals.
The intermediate court bill passed via a 23-11 vote.
The intermediate court bill requires passage from the House of Delegates and the signature of the governor. The resolution requires approval from two-thirds of the House and a majority of ballot voters.
