State appeal process shorter It takes less time to get an appeals case before the West Virginia Supreme Court than it does to appeal to the Supreme Court of most other states in the Nation. That's the opinion of West Virginia Supreme Court ]ustice Donald Wilson following a two-week seminar in New York that was attended by Supreme Court Justices from through- out the United States. "There was great concern among these judges on the amount of time necessary to get an appeals case before the state Supreme court. It takes a considerable amount of time in West Virginia. However, I was pleased to learn, through discussion, that the average appeal in West Virginia is shorter in terms of months than in most other states," Wilson said. The Supreme Court Justice added that the West Virginia Court is ahead of most other states in the Nation in research of court cases that bring about changes in the law. The two week seminar at the New York University centered on recent United States Supreme Court decisions.
