Virginia Supreme Court takes on two consumer protection appeals

The Virginia Supreme Court has granted petitions for appeal in two consumer protection cases, here and here, predictably with the consumer as appellant in both cases. The Virginia Consumer Protection Act remains somewhat uncharted territory, as the appellate cases are few, but these days it requires review in almost every kind of consumer dispute because it possibly eliminates many elements that bog down common law tort and warranty claims (and it allows for attorneys' fees).
