Tort – Defamation – Political Campaign Literature

In this defamation action by a candidate for the Virginia Senate in 2003 against his opponent, the incumbent, based on statements in campaign literature, a Richmond Circuit Court sustains the demurrer to the claims of failure to pay debt and bribery, but overrules the demurrer on the claims related to bankruptcy and taking money from children.
