CHARLESTON, W.Va. - In a majority ruling, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals on Nov. 22 affirmed a trial court's decision to deny a request by tenants who sought to amend their complaint to include claims related to mold exposure, finding that the amendments would be prejudicial to the respondents in the case (Ilene Kassab, et al. v. Wilma Ellis, et al., No. 13-0263, W.Va. Sup.; 2013 W. Va. LEXIS 1363).
