A few weeks ago, I started a new blog that focuses on noteworthy civil cases and news from the United States District Court for the Western District
of Virginia. I have a special affinity for this part of the Commonwealth
and its federal court. I grew up in Bedford County, just outside
Lynchburg, Virginia -- the center of the seven divisions in the WDVa.
After law school, I served as a law clerk for then Chief Judge Samuel G.
Wilson in Roanoke, Virginia. After a brief hiatus in North Carolina, I
returned to the Commonwealth and have been practicing law in
Charlottesville, Virginia, home of my alma mater, the University of
Virginia. Although not as famous as the Eastern District of Virginia's
"rocket docket," I find the Western District to be appropriately
expeditious in moving cases forward, courteous towards lawyers,
thoughtful in their deliberations and fair to all litigants. I am
looking forward to writing more about significant cases and developments
within the Western District of Virginia. You can check out the blog at http://www.westernvirginialaw.blogspot.com/
