Stay granted in coaching dispute
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Kanawha County judge has granted a stay allowing Martinsburg High School basketball coach Victor L. Holmes to retain his position until the start of the 1998-99 school year.
By that time, another Kanawha County judge will have likely made a decision on the merits of Holmes' ongoing case. If not, Holmes can ask for another stay for that year.
Judge Irene Berger granted the stay on Friday. Judge Paul Zakaib will determine if a hearing examiner's decision - allowing former coach Dave Rogers to resume his position - should be upheld.
