CHARLESTON, W.V. - The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals on Oct. 18 upheld a $10,000 jury award on counterclaims brought by homeowners involved in a construction contract dispute, finding "no compelling reason to set aside the jury's verdict because the evidence supports the finding that respondents are entitled to recover damages related to repairing the defects in the construction" (Hawkins and Nesbitt Contracting Inc. v. Keith Queen, et al., No. 12-1256, W. Va. Sup.; 2013 W. Va. LEXIS 1111).
