WVC 50-4-11 §50-4-11. Dismissal of actions for lack of jurisdiction.
If at any time a magistrate determines that an action involves a matter outside of or an amount in excess of the jurisdiction of the magistrate court, the action shall be dismissed without prejudice. Judgment shall be awarded against the plaintiff in such event for any costs incurred by defendant. A plaintiff may, at any time before such dismissal, forgive in writing any amounts which may be in excess of the monetary limitation of the court's jurisdiction and confer jurisdiction thereby.
