Supreme Court of Virginia reaches age of 225

The AP reports here on the ceremonies marking the 225th anniversary of the establishment of the Virginia Supreme Court. The Court's website has this detailed press release, which notes among other things: "Until 1788, the judges never rendered written opinions or gave reasons for their decisions."

Subsequently, the Court has produced about 270 volumes of opinions collected in the Virginia Reports.
