Carl Wayne Vaughan, Admn’r. v. Greater Huntington Park and Recreation Dist., et al.

Case Number:
Case Date:
Case Issue:

The barge line defendants appeal from the circuit court's order finding that they did not hold out their real or personal property for recreational use and, therefore, West Virginia Code §19-25-2, et seq. (West Virginia Recreational Immunity Statute), does not shield them from liability. The circuit court found that there was no genuine issue as to any material fact on that issue; that the barge line defendants would not be entitled to assert the recreational immunity statute as a defense; and, that a final judgment was entered on that issue pursuant to Rule 54(b) thereby making the ruling a final and appealable order.
