Morrisey files motion, seeks stay

CHARLESTON — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey filed a motion in the state’s Supreme Court of Appeals Wednesday night for a stay pending appeal of the preliminary and injunctive relief recently granted against the Hope Scholarship Act.

The move followed an Intermediate Court of Appeals decision late Tuesday to deny a stay of the injunction, issued by a Kanawha County Circuit Court judge who ruled the act violates the state Constitution.

The Hope Scholarship Act was signed into law in 2021. The scholarship allows approved families to use the funding traditionally provided to public schools for a variety of expenses, including tuition and fees at participating private schools and other extracurricular activities.
