Rockingham County Circuit CourtI am writing with a very quick update on the status of the non-suit in Virginia, the subject of our very first blog post here.  While Virginia is typically viewed as a conservative and somewhat pro-defendant forum, it does have one very nice procedure that is very beneficial to plaintiffs, the right to take one voluntary dismissal with prejudice at virtually any time and start the case over again (called a statutory non-suit).  The plaintiff then gets the original statute of limitations, or an extra six months from entry of the non-suit order to re-file their case.
