If you're looking for court cases in West Virginia, the best place to start is the West Virginia state archives. The court records are classified and can be accessed by members of the general public.
The court cases documentation are stored and maintained at the archives on microfilms. Copies can be purchased for predetermined fee.
The county clerks that are located at the state archives along with the court houses have a clear agenda to pursue the integrity of the information stored within the archives and as of such, they have a great significance in depicting the state's history.
In some cases, such as where juvenile delinquents are involved, the state may deem it inappropriate to release the information to the general publish.
