Prosecutor as litigant gets no joy in pier building case

In Palmer v. Commonwealth of Virginia Marine Resources Commission, the Virginia Court of Appeals in an opinion by Judge Frank joined by Chief Judge Felton and Judge Clements rejected the appeal brought by King William County Commonwealth's attorney Stephen Palmer over the building on the pier on his property in Mathews County. The Newport News paper has this story about the case.

Chief Judge Felton? The opinion notes that Judge Felton became Chief Judge on April 1, succeeding Judge Fitzpatrick.
