Tony Coffman, et al. v. Nicholas County Commission, No. 15-1223 - Petitioners appeal the circuit court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of respondents in a case involving the propriety of an annexation of property by minor boundary adjustment pursuant to West Virginia Code § 8-6-5. Petitioners contend that the trial court erred in granting summary judgment to respondents as the property at issue was not subject to annexation by minor boundary adjustment. Petitioners further argue that the circuit court erred in finding that the annexation was made in compliance with West Virginia Code § 8-6-5; that the annexation did not constitute a public nuisance; that the annexation was not in the best interests of Nicholas County; and that the annexation was not a taking of property without compensation.

David Stafford v. Frances Newsome, 16-0014 - Petitioner appeals the circuit court’s order affirming the family court’s final order in this family law matter.

Leslie Meadows, No. 16-0068 - Petitioner appeals the circuit court’s “Amended Judgment Order” awarding a judgment to respondent in the total amount of $85,675.00 following a bench trial in respondent’s suit against petitioner. In her suit, respondent claimed she was owed money from separate real estate projects that she shared with respondent. Respondent raises a cross-assignment of error in which she argues that the court should have entered judgment for $193,150.00.
