Mailbox rule proposed for post-conviction inmate filings

The Virginia Supreme Court is seeking comments on proposed Rule 3A:25, which would make inmate filings when properly put into the prison's mail system in accordance with the Rule.

The rule is limited to petitions brought under Va. Code 8.01-654 and does not apply to other kinds of civil suits brought by inmates.
