What Makes a Virginia Venue Good for the Plaintiff?
Civil cases are a mix of many different factors. Some of the ingredients that determine whether a Virginia venue is favorable to a litigant in a nursing home negligence case include:
- the demographics of that county, which determine the venire, or make up of the potential jury.
- the judges in that county and whether they tend to be more plaintiff-oriented or defense-oriented. A plaintiff-oriented bench will be more likely to allow in evidence favorable to the plaintiff whereas a defense-leaning judge will likely keep out critical evidence.
- the tendencies and leanings of the local appellate court. If you a nursing home plaintiff hits on a big jury verdict, will the appellate court allow them to keep it? Or will they find error in the trial and reverse? This has a downstream effect on how trial judges rule in the underlying case.
