CHARLESTON – Two stockholders of a Kanawha County corporation are seeking to partition the corporation's real estate.
Freeda Larch and Jimmie Larch filed a complaint July 21 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Burdette Realty Improvement Inc. and Jon Burdette citing West Virginia Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs are stockholders of BRI with Burdette. They allege that West Virginia Code allows a closely held corporation of less than five stockholders to compel partition of the corporation's real estate.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek request that the court partition the defendant BRI's real property in a manner that the court deems just. They are represented by Michael W. Carey and David R. Pogue of Carey, Scott, Douglas & Kessler PLLC in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
