Circuit court opinions from Norfolk

Here are some online opinions from circuit court judges in Norfolk, I think, and many of them are incredibly interesting.

Among them is Com. v. Dickens, which declares the use of an accusatory affidavit authorized by Va. Code 18.2-472.1(D) violates the Confrontation Clause of the Sixth Amendment as construed by the Supreme Court in Crawford v. Washington.

Another is ODU v. Birkmeyer, dealing with the applicability of the McDonnell-Douglas proof scheme from Title VII to a state employee's grievance about racial discrimination.

Also there is another chapter in the Mattaponi Indian litigation over the King William Reservoir Project.
