The Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia has upheld an order granting summary judgment to the chair of the West Virginia Republican Party, attorney Elgine H. McArdle, after a former client from a family law case claimed legal malpractice.

According to the opinion, the client, Karen Coffield, was involved in a three-year relationship with Ronald Neil Robinson II. At the end of their relationship, Coffield became pregnant. Coffield told Robinson that the baby was conceived by artificial insemination and that he was not the father. The baby was born in 2001.
