Va. S.Ct. grants petition in another nonsuit case

The question presented in FORD MOTOR COMPANY v. MARGARET JONES is whether the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, by Judge Jane Roush, "erred in granting plaintiff's voluntary nonsuit over Ford's objection when the nonsuit was taken after the case had been decided by a jury and all claims had been finally adjudicated by the trial court." It sounds like error, if that's what actually happened - but with Robert Hall and others on the other side, there's probably more to the story.
