Supreme Court of Virginia

Lewis v. Commonwealth

No error is found in a review of the sentences of death imposed upon defendant after her guilty plea to charges of capital murder for hire in violation of Code &#167 18.2-31(2), robbery and related firearms offenses. There is no reason to commute the death sentences, and the judgment of the circuit court is affirmed.

Beck v. Shelton

The trial court did not err in concluding that members-elect of a public body are not "members" under the plain language of The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and that a neighborhood street gathering was not a "meeting" under the FOIA, but did err in concluding that the e-mail communications used in this case constituted a "meeting" under the FOIA. The judgment is affirmed in part and reversed in part, and final judgment is entered. (Revised 4/1/04)

Bates v. Commonwealth

In a wrongful death action against the Commonwealth under the Virginia Tort Claims Act, a notice of claim naming a university medical center was sufficient to comply with the requirements of Code &#167 8.01-195.6 for identification of the "place" where the injury was alleged to have occurred. The trial court erred in sustaining a plea of sovereign immunity and dismissing the claim with prejudice. The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded for further proceedings.

Barkley v. Wallace

Because the circuit court erred in ruling that evidence of a personal injury plaintiff's medical bills and expenses that were discharged in bankruptcy was inadmissible for the limited purpose of proving her pain and suffering caused by the accident, the judgment is reversed and the case is remanded.

Phipps v. Liddle

Where the granting of a nonsuit was appealed, Code &#167 8.01-229(E)(3) afforded the plaintiff six months to refile the action, running from the date the appellate court's mandate resolving the appeal was entered by the trial court. Because the plaintiff refiled the present action within that period, the trial court erred in dismissing it as untimely. The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded for further proceedings.
