BOWMAN v. WASHINGTON (ORDER)

In granting a habeas corpus request for a belated appeal where the petitioner was denied his right to appeal through no fault of his own due to counsel's failure to file a timely petition for appeal, the trial court abused its discretion in dismissing several of petitioner's other claims with prejudice. The circuit court?s order is affirmed in part and reversed in part, and the cause is remanded to the circuit court for entry of an order dismissing the petitioner?s remaining habeas corpus claims without prejudice.

NELSON v. COMMONWEALTH

In a prosecution for sexual offenses against a minor, the Court of Appeals did not err in ruling that the trial court correctly reviewed sensitive medical records of the victim in camera and properly refused to allow examination of the records by the defendant, and the Court of Appeals did not err in ruling that the trial court correctly declined to conduct a hearing regarding allegations of a juror's possible bias. The judgment is affirmed.

CHANDLER v. GRAFFEO

In a medical malpractice case, the trial court erred in admitting a medical malpractice review panel's opinion favoring the defense and testimony of its members into evidence when that opinion was not timely rendered under Code § 8.01-581.7:1, permitting two panel members to testify as experts for the defense, granting jury instructions on the issue of contributory negligence, and allowing the defendant physician to recite the out-of-court opinion of a non-testifying physician as to the applicable standard of care. The judgment is reversed and the case remanded for further proceedings.

DANIEL v. COMMONWEALTH

The trial court did not err in concluding that an assault and battery charge taken under advisement for one year, and later dismissed, was not ?otherwise dismissed? as contemplated by Code § 19.2-392.2(A)(2), and it properly denied a petition for expungement on that ground. Further, the statute does not contemplate a hearing to permit the petitioner to assert his innocence of the original criminal charge. The judgment is affirmed.

AMSTUTZ v. EVERETT JONES LUMBER CORP.

In two collected suits involving asserted prescriptive easement rights over a roadway on private land, there was not credible evidence to support the circuit court finding that a lumber company and an adjoining landowner had established such an easement under the clear and convincing evidence standard. Use of the roadway was not of sufficient continuity to give notice to the owners of the putative servient tenement that an easement was being exercised for agricultural, forestry, timbering or logging purposes. The judgment of the circuit court granting the prescriptive easement is reversed.

TUCKER v. COMMONWEALTH

Because under Code § 18.2-102 the crime of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle is committed upon the ?use? of a vehicle without the owner?s consent, regardless of whether initial possession of the vehicle was obtained by a trespassory taking, the Court of Appeals' judgment allowing defendant's conviction for this offense to stand is affirmed.

PARR v. ALDERWOODS GROUP, INC.

Several contemporaneously executed contracts relating to the acquisition of a funeral home business are treated as integrated in determining the enforceability of various provisions in the contracts after one party's default. The noncompetition provisions in a business management agreement and restrictive covenants in a related lease were unenforceable by a party which had defaulted on its payment obligations in the transaction. The judgment is affirmed in part, reversed in part, and final judgment is entered.
