WVC 2-2-2

§2-2-2. When acts to be done fall on Saturday, Sunday or legal

holiday; adjournments from day to day.

(a) When a proceeding is directed to take place or any act to

be done on any particular day of the month or within any period of

time prescribed or allowed, including those provided by article

two, chapter fifty-five, of this code, if that day or the last day

falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other

emergency day, the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal

holiday, or a weather or other emergency day shall be deemed to be

the one intended, and when the day upon which a term of court is

directed by law to commence, falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal

holiday, or a weather or other emergency day, the following day

that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or

other emergency day shall be deemed to be the day intended. When

an adjournment is authorized from day to day, an adjournment from

Friday to Monday will be legal.

(b)(1) For purposes of this section, "weather or other

emergency day" means a day designated for a county in accordance

with the provisions of subdivision (2) of this subsection as a day

upon which weather or other emergency conditions in that county

prevent the general transaction of court business in that county.

(2) A weather or other emergency day is designated by order of

the chief justice of the supreme court of appeals or by order of

the chief judge of the circuit court of the county in which the

proceeding is directed to take place or in which the act is to be done.
