Companies don't use judges. Judges are appointed to cases. It sounds like Seneca doesn't want to make the repairs and when they lose the housing authority money, there won't be anyone to pay the rent. It is possible to get legal assistance at your local bar association.

The question is confusing, but the judge is at the court, and it is he/she who will decide if you get evicted. I urge you to speak with a landlord attorney or contact Legal Aid of WV, www.lawv.net. It sounds that you may have a defense to eviction based on breach of quiet enjoyment, breach of habitability and retaliatory eviction.

To questioners from West Virginia & New York: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. It is always best, however, to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
