On appeal, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia held that prisoners challenging their convictions in state Habeas actions could obtain discovery only under W.Va. Post-Conviction Habeas Corpus Proc. R. 7(a). Thus, the Court affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of these actions. See: State ex rel. Wyant and Valentine, 214 W.Va. 434; 589 S.E.2d 812 (2003).
