No. 33195 - State of West Virginia ex rel. R. E. Hamrick, J. R.., M.D. v. The
Honorable James C. Stucky, Judge of the Circuit Court of Kanawha
County, et al.
Starcher, J., dissenting:
I dissent from the majority opinion, not because I disagree with everything in
the opinion, but because I think that this is a classic example of how this
Court should not
be micro-managing the procedural operations of our circuit courts.
The respondent, the Hon. James C. Stucky, is quite competent to manage
procedural conflicts in his court and to referee contentious lawyers. I would not interfere
with or second guess his methodology in doing so.
Respectfully, I therefore dissent to this Court's interference in the procedural
aspects of this litigation.
