Gambrell v. City of Norfolk

In a personal injury action involving a "slip and fall" accident on snow and ice in a municipal parking lot, the evidence was sufficient to support the circuit court's decision sustaining the city's special plea of sovereign immunity since the action related to governmental functions after a major snow storm.

Washington v. United Parcel Service

In a workers' compensation appeal, the Court of Appeals erred in addressing an issue of causal connection that was not properly before that court and not properly before the Commission. As a result, there was no basis for concluding that the claimant would be unjustly enriched by receiving benefits to which he was not entitled. A prior award of benefits remains valid, and the refusal to assess a 20% penalty was error. The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded for further proceedings. (Revised 3/8/04)

Wright v. Kaye

In a medical malpractice action, the trial court erred in striking the plaintiff's expert witnesses and granting summary judgment for the defendant doctor. The court also erred in failing to grant certain in limine motions to exclude the discussions about risks of surgery and to bar certain hearsay statements. Other in limine motions were correctly decided. The judgment of the trial court is affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded for further proceedings.

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.

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.
