Supreme Court affirms Gilmer Co. decision

CHARLESTON – Because the intentions in his will were clear enough, the state Supreme Court has ruled a Gilmer County woman may continue to reside in the home she shared with her former companion.

In a 4-1 decision, the court affirmed the ruling Gilmer Circuit Judge Jack Alsop made in August 2012 granting summary judgment to Ruth Mitchell in a suit to quiet title brought by the estate and heirs of Willard Cottrill.

In a memorandum opinion issued Oct. 18, two days shy of the third anniversary of Cottrill, 73, dying suddenly and under suspicious circumstances, the court said the effort by the estate’s executor, Michael Murphy, Cottrill’s son-in-law, and the heirs to eject Mitchell from the modular home she shared with Cottrill on his 42-acre property in Linn is “wholly inconsistent,” with his last will and testament.

Memorandum opinions are issued by the court in cases that present no new issues of law and would not be aided by oral argument. Chief Justice Brent Benjamin cast the dissenting vote.

According to court records, Cottrill’s will was admitted into probate on Nov. 5, 2010. In it, he directed that a residence be provided for Mitchell “for so long as she chooses to reside, with this provision becoming void should she at any time choose or need to live elsewhere.”

Cottrill also specified that Mitchell’s “residency shall not preclude divestiture of the property by my heirs, and is not intended to establish a life tenancy.” Furthermore, he “direct[ed] that income from the rental units on my property be used for taxes and upkeep of the remainder of the property including the unit occupied by Ruth Mitchell, and the parcel referenced in the above provision.”

On June 17, 2011, Murphy, along with his wife, Venita, and her brothers Mark and Alan Cottrill, residents of Syracuse, N.Y., filed suit seeking an order to compel Mitchell to “vacate the premises.”

However, on Aug. 21, 2012, the eve of a trial date in the case, Alsop granted Mitchell’s motion for summary judgment recognizing, as Cottrill specified in his will, she had a right to reside on the property so long as she desired.

In affirming Alsop’s decision, the court clarified that Mitchell’s residence is no way construed to be a life estate or tenancy. Regardless, ordering her out of the dwelling she’s called home for the last decade would go against Cottrill’s express wishes.

“The relief [the estate and the heirs] sought beyond clear title – this is, ejectment – is wholly inconsistent with [Cottrill’s] directive that [Mitchell] be provided a residence,” the court said.

“Inasmuch as the circuit court was called upon to construe Mr. Cottrill’s will in this action to quiet title, it appropriately followed the tenant of this Court: ‘The cardinal principle in construing a will is to ascertain the intent of the testator as expressed in the wills and codicils, giving consideration to the surrounding circumstances.’”

The estate, and the heirs were represented by Staci N. Criswell with Dinsmore and Shohl. Mitchell was defended by Gassaway attorney Dan Grindo.

Secret Seven Coalition Captain Lawrence Smith “OUTS” Gerald B Hough as a HYPOCRITE!

By Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor

Hypocrite – Merriam-Webster Online

a person who claims or pretends to have certain beliefs about what is right but who behaves in a way that disagrees with those beliefs 

Gerald B Hough is the exact definition of a Hypocrite as recognized in a letter to the office of the prosecutor for Gilmer County which you will find below. Gerald B Hough is also the exact definition of a  ..Lying Dishonest Son of a Bitch, among other things too numerous to mention! Here is the letter and photo from Secret Seven Coalition member Lawrence Smith from Hurricane.
Gerry:
I’ve noticed among the signs that greet people when they enter Gilmer County along W. Va. 5 is one concerning elder abuse.  Since passersby are encouraged to contact you with instances of which they may be aware, I take it to mean combating elder abuse is top priority of your office.
With that said, however, could you please explain to me why law enforcement in Gilmer County, particularly the State Police, and more specifically Sgt. Mark Yost, the detachment commander, is looking the other way on actions by the Murphy/Cottrill family of Syracuse, N.Y. along with Richard Neal, a Weston businessman,  to torment, harass and intimidate Ruth Mitchell, an elderly Linn resident, by engaging in, among other things, terroristic threats, trespassing, theft and forgery? 
 
You may reply to this message or contact me via telephone at the number below.  I look forward to hearing from you.

WRAP YOUR FISH IN THE GLENVILLE DEMORCRAT and PATHFINDER FOR THAT IS ABOUT ALL IT IS GOOD FOR!

Earlier today a member of the press with the highest credentials that often speaks on 50,000 watt major market talk radio stations, and has had some major segments worldwide on over 500 stations broadcasting the same program talked to “Sarah” of the Glenville Democrat and Pathfinder, about the bad reporting of Dendra Miller since SARAH was the only person in the office of the backwoods Crooked County Newspaper, specific points were made, and they were informed of once again being a part of “..Gilmer County Mushroom publishing by keeping everyone in the dark and feeding them shit!”

Dendra Miller is about a DUMB BITCH for her latest article that came out today, Thursday October the 10th 2013 in the Glenville Democrap and Pathfinder of Bullshit in which she misquotes Brian Kennedy in the last Gilmer County Commission meeting and says stupid shit like the rapes at Glenville State are being investigated.

Dendra Miller is one dumb hillbilly bitch, for her first mistake is she says on behalf of Concerned Citizens, well hey that is us, but Dave Ramezan uses the term “residents,” not citizens! In fact, watch this video for yourself and you can decide and come to your own conclusions about the Glenville Democrap and Pathfinder of Bullshit and the bad reporting they are known for!

DEVIN HEATER FROM HOPE INC. PROVES TO BE COMPLETE PHONY!

TRUE COLORS SHOWED and it is revealed in this video DEVIN HEATER from HOPE Inc and her proclamation of Domestic Violence Awareness Month is obviously a complete sham.

In my opinion Heater came off as a real phony and this video obviously exposes the facts that the GILMER COUNTY COMMISSION violated the people’s RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH represented by the publisher of the GFP.

TRUE COLORS OF BRIAN KENNEDY SHOWED WHICH is THE COLOR OF DISHONESTY ! IF I WAS AT THIS MEETING I WOULD CREATED A HUGE DISTURBANCE AND IT COULD HAVE LED TO SERIOUS SITUATION OVER A TYPICAL TACTIC USED BY THE CROOKS OF CROOKED COUNTY.

KENNEDY STATED TO DAVE RAMEZAN THAT HE PUTS WORDS IN PEOPLES MOUTHS AND THAT IS A COMPLETE LIE AND FABRICATION.

THIS IS A TACTIC USED OFTEN BY GILMER COUNTY OFFICIALS -THEY SIMPLY JUST MAKE STUFF UP AND BRIAN KENNEDY IS CAUGHT ON VIDEO DOING IT HERE.

KENNEDY NEEDS TO BE CONFRONTED FOR HIS UN AMERICAN ACTION AND I FOR ONE SUBMIT THAT WE PUT TOGETHER A PETITION TO REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE.

DEVIN HEATER’ S PROCLAMATION IS A SHAM AND THE 17 UN PROSECUTED RAPES AT GSC WERE NOT ADDRESSED BY THE COMMISSION OR RECOGNIZED BY SOMEONE WHO GETS PAID TO BE A RAPE COUNSELOR.

THIS VIDEO PROVES THE GILMER COUNTY PROCLAMATION ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS A PHONY AND JUST AS PHONY AS THE HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA AND GED OF SHERIFF METZ WHICH WAS PUBLISHED FOR ALL TO SEE – NOW MICKEY METZ CAN’T EVEN GET A JOB AS A JAIL GUARD BECAUSE HE DOES NOT HAVE THE REQUIREMENTS.

Brian Kennedy is late to every meeting and did not let Dave Ramezan make a statement for the people – please forward to minute 28 on the video and let play to minute 33 and you will see for yourself that our Gilmer County Commission is made up of phony’s that have not one care for the well being of the community, and I for one am making a call for action to make some changes for the better in Gilmer County!
