Obtained Writ of Prohibition from the West Virginia Supreme Court dismissing all claims
We represented an insurance agent accused of starting a sexual relationship with the plaintiff’s ex-wife in order to convince her to purchase an annuity. The plaintiff alleged claims of negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and other torts. The West Virginia Supreme Court found that all of the plaintiff’s claims were based upon the fact that our client allegedly had an affair with the plaintiff’s ex-wife, and so were in reality all claims for alienation of affections. This resulted in the dismissal of all claims against our client.
