Virginia Supreme Court bounces habeas petition in death case for too many pages

As reported here, "[t]he Virginia Supreme Court returned a habeas corpus appeal for convicted killer Edward Nathaniel Bell April 10 because it exceeded the court’s 50-page limit." The petition, filed by attorney Roy Bradley, was 97 pages. The article states the petitioner has 10 days in which to refile a conforming petition.
