FAIRMONT — The Monongalia County attorney who allegedly suffered facial injuries in a fight with a fellow lawyer at the J. Harper Meredith Building in Fairmont has filed a countersuit against his alleged assailant.

Scott Radman says that Stephen Sean Murphy injured him so badly in the Jan. 22 fray that he was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital with two broken eye sockets and a fractured skull, and “almost lost his life.”

The incident happened Jan. 22 on the fourth floor of the city-county complex. This floor crosses over to the second floor of the Marion County Courthouse, where both attorneys reportedly had meetings with a Marion circuit judge.
