WEST VIRGINIA CODE
WVC 4 - 1 A- 15
§4-1A-15. Right to interlocutory appeal.
Denial of a claim of legislative immunity is immediately
appealable under the collateral order doctrine because the Speech
or Debate Clause is designed to protect legislators not only from
the consequences of litigation's results but also from the burden
of defending themselves.
Note: WV Code updated with legislation passed through the 2015 Regular Session
