Case Date:
Case Issue:

Petitioner State Farm appeals from the circuit court's order granting partial summary judgment in favor of plaintiffs. The circuit court found that the policy language relied upon by State Farm in its denial of liability coverage violated West Virginia law; that State Farm owed plaintiff Blake a duty of defense in a magistrate court action; and that plaintiff Blake had a reasonable expectation of coverage for the loss asserted. State Farm seeks a reversal of these rulings.
