West Virginia Judge Dismisses Parts Suit Against Liberty Mutual, Shop Owner

January 16, 2015

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that accused a St. Albans, W.Va., body shop owner of illegally installing junkyard parts on new vehicles.

Greg Chandler tells the Charleston Daily Mail that he feels vindicated by the ruling.

Former Attorney General Darrell McGraw filed the lawsuit in 2011 against Greg Chandler’s Frame & Body and Liberty Mutual Insurance.

The lawsuit alleged that Liberty’s policy to use reconditioned, remanufactured or used parts for vehicle repairs violated state law.

Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Charles King dismissed the lawsuit on Monday.

The lower court previously had ruled in favor of the attorney general. The state Supreme Court reversed that decision and sent the case back to circuit court.
