Dzinglski v. Weirton Steel Corp

In Dzinglski v. Weirton Steel Corp., 191 W.Va. 278, 445 S.E.2d 219 (1994), the Court affirmed the circuit court's leave to amend the plaintiff's complaint to assert a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress two weeks before trial and six and one-half years after the action was begun. In that case, the outrage claim arose from the same set of facts as those in the original complaint. In addition, Dzinglski v. Weirton Steel Corp involved an appeal where the issue for the Court was whether the circuit court abused its discretion in granting the plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint.
