Robert Deegan II and Robert Deegan filed a lawsuit Jan. 9, in the Kanawha Circuit Court against
Genesis Healthcare LLC, Sunbridge Mountain Care Management Inc., John Does 1-10, unidentified entities 1-10 and New Martinsville Healthcare Center,
alleging they breached their duty to properly manage and operate the nursing home facility.
