No. 23942 - State of West Virginia ex rel. Bell Atlantic - West Virginia, Inc., a West Virginia corporation, and Bell Atlantic Corporation, a Delaware corporation v. Honorable Lyne Ranson, Judge of the Circuit Court of Kanawha County; E. Keith Morgan, Michael T. Sword, Daniel P. O'Connor, Jean Sanson, dba C. J.'s Auto Sales; and Doris J. Graley, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated







Maynard, Justice, dissenting:







I respectfully dissent. I would grant the writ and compel the trial court to dismiss because I believe the Public Service Commission, not the trial court, has exclusive jurisdiction of inside wire maintenance agreements.
