Most who know me well, know that I spend as little time as possible in the trial courts — in fact virtually none. I managed to keep that record intact on Monday. I was asked to consult on a personal injury case that had moved from the general district court to the circuit court but was procedurally probably not ripe for an appeal. I prepared a motion to remand the case which was to have been argued at 10AM in the Roanoke City Circuit Court. The defendant made an offer of settlement on Sunday which the plaintiff accepted on Monday around 9:45. The matter was concluded in the hallway outside the courtroom.
