OPINION ISSUED DECEMBER 11, 1992
WEST VIRGINIA REGIONAL JAIL AND
CORRECTIONAL FACILITY AUTHORITY
DIVISION OF CORRECTIONS
Chad Cardinal, Assistant Attorney General, for claimant.
George P. Stanton, III, Assistant Attorney General, and Rita Stuart, Attorney at Law, for respondent.
This claim was submitted to the Court upon a stipulation agreed to by the parties.
The claimant maintains the Eastern Regional Jail which provides accommodations for prisoners from
several counties. Many of these prisoners have been sentenced and committed to other facilities,
Huttonsville, Correctional Center and West Virginia Penitentiary, and owned and operated by
respondent; however, respondent is unable to house such prisoners at such other facilities, and has
caused such prisoners to be incarcerated at the Eastern Regional Jail.
Respondent has been unable to process the invoices received from the claimant during the 1991-92
fiscal year as it did not have sufficient funds within its budget for these expenses.
Claimant and respondent have agreed that claimant has incurred fair and reasonable costs in the
amount of $419,456.00 for providing accommodations for these inmates.
In view of the foregoing, the Court makes an award to the claimant in the amount of $419,456.00.
Award of $419,456.00.
