MALBROUGH v. COMMONWEALTH

In a prosecution for drug and weapons violations in which defendant claimed that a consent search of his person conducted at a roadside stop after being told that he was free to leave violated his Fourth Amendment rights, it cannot be said that the trial court's conclusion that a reasonable person would have felt free to ignore such request and leave the scene was plainly wrong or unsupported by the evidence. Defendant did not establish that the circuit court committed reversible error in that finding, and no error is found in the application of law by either that court or the Court of Appeals. Accordingly the judgment upholding the convictions is affirmed.

GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY v. FLOYD

In an appeal from a state university's decision denying a student in-state tuition status under Code § 23-7.4(B), jurisdiction lies in the Supreme Court under Code § 8.01-670(A)(3) because under Code § 17.1-405 the Court of Appeals does not have jurisdiction over an administrative decision made by an entity that is not purely an administrative agency. On the merits, in light of the presumption established in Code § 23-7.4(B), the university's decision was not arbitrary, capricious, or otherwise contrary to law. The judgment of the circuit court is reversed, and final judgment is entered for the university.

BAYVIEW LOAN SERVICING v. SIMMONS

In a breach of contract action arising out of foreclosure proceedings, the circuit court did not err in holding that no right to foreclose had vested in favor of a loan servicing company because it had failed to comply with pre-acceleration notice requirements contained in the deed of trust. The statutory cure provisions of Code § 55-59.1(A) also do not apply, because the issue of whether the right to accelerate is in existence and capable of being exercised by a foreclosure notice is not controlled by the statute and thus remains a matter of contract between the parties. The judgment compensating plaintiff for the equity lost as a result of the foreclosure is affirmed.

UPPER OCCOQUAN SEWAGE AUTHORITY v. BLAKE CONSTRUCTION CO.

In considering contract claims arising under the Virginia Public Procurement Act, the circuit court had jurisdiction to determine interest due under a judgment and did not err in determining that interest accrued on awarded compensatory damages, but did err in setting the applicable interest rate. The court also erred in determining that post-judgment interest accrued on the pre-judgment interest awarded in two trials and that the judgment debtor had made a timely allocation of payment on the debt; however it did not err in denying the judgment debtor's motion for satisfaction. The judgment is affirmed in part, reversed in part, and the case is remanded.

HILTON v. MARTIN

In an action to recover damages for personal injury and death resulting from an assault on the victim by a fellow employee, the trial court erred in concluding that the Virginia Worker?s Compensation Act provided the exclusive remedy for the claims. Applying the actual risk test, the assault on the victim had no relationship with her status as an employee. Whether intended as flirtatious, merely playful, or as harassment, the assault was purely personal and thus the resulting injury and death did not "arise out of the employment" under Code § 65.2-101. The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded for further proceedings.
