The rule issued against Attorney Roland E. Chase of Clintwood from Judge Skeen's court last July was dismissed at the January term, which has just closed. The purpose of the rule was to require him to appear before the Circuit Court of Dickenson County to show cause why he should not be disbarred for obtaining alleged fraudulent judgments against numerous residents of the county in favor of Harrison Wagener of Washington, D.C. The evidence showed that Chase was the dupe of Wagener, and his character has been vindicated by the court in the dismissal of the rule.
