CHARLESTON -- Two men are suing the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of West Virginia F & A.M., Inc.
Calvin Washington and Eugene Burney, the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grant Lodge of West Virginia, also were named as defendants in the suit.
On Dec. 2, 2011, Ray B. Woods Jr. and Thomas Conner III were suspended for "unmasonic conduct" by the defendants, according to a complaint filed April 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Woods and Conner claim the defendants refused to define what "unmasonic conduct" was when questioned.
Despite multiple attempts to resolve the matter, the defendants have failed to respond to the attempts, according to the suit.
Woods and Conner claim the defendants did not follow the established constitution and by-laws of the fraternity.
The defendants' conduct detrimentally effected the personal and professional reputations of the plaintiffs, according to the suit.
Woods and Conner are seeking compensatory and punitive damages. They are being represented by Rico R. Moore.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Charles E. King.
