The incredible shrinking W.D. Va.

Via VLW, the Roanoke Times has this article that says shrinking caseload in the W.D. Va. has led to some diminished funding with the possibility of further cuts in sight.

Consistent with the article, we have been told of the reduced staff in the clerk's offices in Big Stone Gap and Abingdon - including that Libby Sharp is retiring and will not be replaced.

God bless Libby, the great friend of so many former law clerks and others who have passed through the halls of the old building there in Wise County, and also bless the fact that if they again close down that courthouse at BSG, it will not be before she retired.
