Upshur County Commission Wants Lawsuit Dismissed

BUCKHANNON -

Upshur County Commission wants a federal court to dismiss a former sheriff candidate's lawsuit.

David Taylor's lawsuit said current and former commissioners conspired to violate his rights in the May 2012 primary.

Taylor lost to Mike Kelley in that primary before Kelley later withdrew.

Taylor said he was denied due process after contesting the election.

The commission's attorney said the lawsuit fails to state a claim on which the court could grant relief.
