Former candidate gets VSB reprimand

Former Congressional candidate Wayne Powell, who lost to Rep. Eric Cantor, has agreed to a reprimand for his handling of litigation arising from workplace injuries

The complaint, which came to light during Powell’s campaign against Cantor,  accused the Midlothian lawyer of not being forthcoming about a lawsuit he filed against contractors who did roof repairs to the Christian Broadcasting Network Building, the  Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Powell contended the allegations were baseless and politically motivated.

The disciplinary ruling was overseen by a three-judge panel of the Chesterfield County Circuit Court, and placed no conditions or restrictions on Powell’s ability to practice law.
