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

Case Number:
33837
Case Date:
24-02-2009
Case Issue:

Defendants appeal from the circuit court's amended order granting plaintiff's motion in limine to the effect that the Barge Line defendants' economic experts would not be allowed to use the personal consumption offset in his calculation of plaintiff's lost future earnings. Defendants seek a reversal of this order on the basis that West Virginia law conflicts with maritime law and that maritime law should control the measure of damages in this wrongful death case.
