Virginia case hinges on constitutional right to hunt

The Louisville paper has this report which begins: "Orion Sporting Group LCC and Orion Estates, a planned 450-acre hunting preserve and sport-shooting estate in rural Virginia, have challenged government officials in Nelson County, Va., for allegedly infringing on the group's state-guaranteed hunting rights."

The article continues: "A news release issued by Orion stated that a zoning appeal by the group was dismissed recently by a Virginia circuit court, but Judge Michael Gamble held that the complaint sufficiently alleged violation of Virginia's constitutional right to hunt, clearing the way for the case to go to trial."
