PINEVILLE - Law and Order in Wyoming County this week:
n According to documents filed in Wyoming County Circuit Court, a couple are alleging that the Nissan they bought is defective and they are seeking damages.
Timmy and Elizabeth Mitchell filed a civil complaint against Nissan Motor Acceptance Group seeking relief under West Virginia's lemon law.
The couple claim that the Nissan they purchased at a Beckley auto dealership continues to have the same mechanical issues since it was purchased.

The couple is seeking a relief of payments made, inconvenience, court costs and attorney fees. The plaintiffs are being represented by attorney David Thompson of Pineville.
Circuit Judge Warren R. McGraw has been assigned the case.
n Another Wyoming County man alleges he is also having truck problems.
Derek Hatfield claimed in a suit filed in the Wyoming County Circuit Court that he has had the same defects in his 2016 Ford F150 and has taken the truck to a mechanic multiple times. Among the malfunctioned alleged are a defective check engine light, there is a defect with the truck's idling and that it "runs rough."
Hatfield bought the vehicle in November 2016 from Ramey Ford Lincoln.
The truck, the suit says, was purchased for $41,795.86 and came with a three-year, 36,000-warranty.
