Recollecting my first unemployment case

In Denisar v. Barrett Hauling, the Virginia Court of Appeals in a per curiam opinion affirmed the circuit court order affirming the VEC's decision that the appellant was disqualified by misconduct from unemployment benefits.

One of my first research projects as a lawyer was to write the brief for the appellant in what became Kennedy’s Piggly Wiggly Stores v. Cooper, 14 Va. App. 701, 419 S.E.2d 278 (1992), a case not infrequently cited on the issue of misconduct and unemployment. One of these days I will get the nerve to post the text of the circuit court opinion from that case, which was written in the form of a poem, dated April 1.
