Dec. 4
Melissa Lyttle, individually and as administratrix of the estate of Leslie C. Lyttle, and Felicia Perdue vs. Ronald E. Pauley, individually and doing business as Iron Bike
PA-Stephen L. Gaylock; J-Spaulding
* The plaintiffs - the wife and daughter of the decedent - claim Pauley has a 1993 Harley Davidson motorcycle that he was repairing when the decedent died on Aug. 6, 2005. They say Pauley already has been paid for his work, but he hasn't made the repairs and improvements. They say they have asked for the repairs to be made or to have the motorcycle returned. They seek immediate possession of the bike or compensation for the bike, money for damages to the bike and for loss of possession and use, punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interests, court costs, attorney fees and other relief. This previously was filed, but was filed again and assigned a new case number.
Case number: 08-C-390

Penni Davis and Keith Davis vs. Brian S. Nipps, Cynthia Nipps, Tim Fitzwater, Gold Key Realty and City National Bank
PA-Martin R. Smith; J-Spaulding
* The plaintiffs bought a home on Poca River Road in 2006. They were "adamantly told" the property has not flooded and was not subjected to water damage. In January 2007, they were informed the property had been flooded previously and that the Nipps, Fitzwater and Gold Key all were aware of the significant nature of the flooding. That breached their agreement, the plaintiffs say. They seek to have the purchase of the property rescinded, to recover damages and that the deed of trust be released. They also seek other damages.
