Three very interesting Virginia cases

The Daily Press reports here ("Civil rights name goes to court," 4/21/05) that yesterday the Virginia Supreme Court heard the case of who in Virginia owns the right to use the name of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

The Connection has this article with more details on the proceedings before Judge Horne in Loudoun County on the remand of the big zoning case, in which the judge allowed landowners to intervene, and in which he dealt with the choice between no zoning and the old zoning as the law after the invalidation of the new zoning.

The Daily Progress has this report on the start, on Wednesday, of the trial of the Nelson County hunting case, where the group is claiming the county is infringing on its hunting rights by requiring a special use permit for the outdoor sports facility that involves shooting.
