Williams v. Precision Coil, Inc
In Williams v. Precision Coil, Inc., 194 W.Va. 52, 459 S.E.2d 329 (1995), Justice Cleckley noted:
"This Court will reverse summary judgment if we find, after reviewing the entire record, a genuine issue of material facts exists or if the moving party is not entitled to judgment as a matter of law. In cases of substantial doubt, the safer course of action is to deny the motion and to proceed to trial." Id. at 59.
It was further stated that "we must draw any permissible inference from the underlying facts in the most favorable light to the party opposing the motion...as credibility determinations, the weighing of evidence, and the drawing of legitimate inferences from the facts are jury functions, not those of a judge." Id.
