Today, the Supreme Court of Virginia granted the Petition for Appeal of the firm's client, Mount Aldie, LLC, on two assignments of error from the Circuit Court of Loudoun County. The assignments of error concern the interpretation and meaning of a conservation easement in favor of the Land Trust of Virginia.
The Supreme Court of Virginia previously considered an appeal in this case when it entered an order in favor of Mount Aldie, LLC and remanded the matter for further proceedings.

Longtime court-watcher Steve Emmert recently observed that it is increasingly rare for the Supreme Court of Virginia to grant appeals. For example, he observed in a May 11th post that Virginia's high court granted Petitions for Appeal at a rate of only 3.5% in 2019.
