Virginia To Codify Its Rules Of Evidence Effective July 1, 2012
As reported by Brad Zinn,
Sometimes the wheels of justice, or in this case the codes that oil those wheels, can move incredibly slow in Virginia.
But after 18 years, come July 1 the state will have codified rules of evidence that will bring Virginia's courts in line with 48 other states that already have rules of evidence in place, leaving Massachusetts as the last remaining state not to do so.
I will have more about this codification this week. Here is a link where you can access the new Virginia Rules of Evidence.
