Docket – November 26, 2018

U.S. District Court – Virginia Eastern

A.E. v. Ashford Gateway TRS Corp. Grp. Inc., EDVA at Richmond (Lauck).

A personal injury suit arising from a hotel light fixture falling onto the head of a child will be transferred from Richmond to Alexandria. The acts giving rise to this suit largely took place in Arlington, no parties live or have their principal place of business in Richmond (the plaintiffs live in Pennsylvania), and no evidence suggests the plaintiffs prefer Richmond to Alexandria.

Motion to transfer granted.

Virginia Circuit Courts

Haworth v. Haworth, Norfolk Cir. (Lannetti).

In a special commissioner sale of 12 parcels of land, Code § 8.01-109 treats each parcel sale as sold separately even in this case where the buyer purchased 11 parcels together for a fixed price. Thus, each parcel may generate a separate commission for the Special Commissioner. However, the amount of each commission is flexible and should not be excessive.
