[08/05/21]   Advance Medical Directives and Powers of Attorney for Returning College Students

Is your son or daughter heading back to college soon? In the event your child is injured while at school, what right would you have to discuss their medical condition with their physicians, or to dispute a bill after the medical services have been completed? The unfortunate answer is— without a power of attorney and advanced medical directive— none.

At Campbell Flannery, we strongly recommend that your young adult college students execute a power of attorney and advanced medical directive before returning to school. This way you can protect their interests.

COVID-19 Housing Protections: Mortgage Forbearance and Other Federal Efforts Have Reduced Default and Foreclosure Risks 07/27/2021

COVID-19 Housing Protections: Mortgage Forbearance and Other Federal Efforts Have Reduced Default and Foreclosure Risks

The moratorium on foreclosures of federally-backed mortgages will end on July 31, 2021, and a mortgage forbearance program will end on September 30, 2021. These programs have strengthened the American housing market in the short term, but their end will lead to financial strain for many American households.

If you or someone you know is in financial distress, we can help.

CLIENT ALERT:
JURISDICTIONAL LIMIT OF VIRGINIA
GENERAL DISTRICT COURTS TO INCREASE
ON JULY 1, 2021

As a result of recent legislation enacted by the Virginia General Assembly, on July 1, 2021, the jurisdictional limit of the Virginia General District Courts will increase from disputes involving a maximum of $25,000.00 to those involving a maximum of $50,000.00, exclusive of interest and attorneys' fee awards. General District Courts are not courts of record. They are, however, powerful courts of equity and provide a forum for efficiently and cost-effectively resolving civil disputes of all kinds. The benefits of these courts arise primarily from the fact that trial dates are readily available (in contrast with the circuit courts), and the discovery process is minimal and less expensive.

Campbell Flannery welcomes this change to Virginia law, and looks forward to litigating additional cases in Virginia's General District Courts under the higher jurisdictional limit. If you or someone you know has a civil dispute of any kind, please contact the firm to speak with one of our attorneys. You may reach us by telephone at (703) 771-8344, or by email at [email protected].

Campbell Flannery is pleased to announce that yesterday, February 25, 2021, the Supreme Court of Virginia entered an order in favor of the firm's client, Mt. Aldie, LLC ("Mt. Aldie") in the Loudoun County case of Land Trust of Virginia v. Mt. Aldie, Case No. CL00083131. The Supreme Court's order vacates the order of the Circuit Court of Loudoun County awarding the Land Trust of Virginia ("LTV") attorneys' fees and granting LTV injunctive relief that restricted Mt. Aldie, LLC's use of forested mountain land in Aldie, Virginia. Yesterday's decision brings about the end of a long-fought legal battle that dates back to 2013, and which involved two trips to the Supreme Court of Virginia. Each appeal resulted in a victory for Mt. Aldie.

The land in question is owned by Mt. Aldie, a special purpose entity formed by long-time local conservation hero Jack Andrews. The ancient and famous Indian Spring and the Indian Spring Trail are located within its boundaries. Mr. Andrews has been recently attacked with respect to his proposed restoration project in the Village of Aldie, including claims that the Conservation Easement identified above has been violated. In this regard, Mr. Andrews states: "My family has always wanted to preserve Mt. Aldie, so that the public might enjoy it forever. It is disappointing that others claim that 'development' is the goal when the real goal is preservation, much like our recent work on the Aldie River Walk and Aldie Dam Millrace Trail. I am pleased with the Supreme Court's confirmation that Mt. Aldie acted within its reserved rights under the Conservation Easement."

During the course of this case, LTV's attorneys requested $2,222,815.60 in fees and costs. Because the Supreme Court of Virginia held that Mt. Aldie acted within its reserved rights and did not violate the Conservation Easement, LTV will not recover those fees and costs from Mt. Aldie or Mr. Andrews.

With respect to yesterday's appellate victory, counsel for Mt. Aldie, James P. Campbell, noted that "the citizens of Aldie have been visiting the Indian Spring for more than 200 years. Consistent with the recent proposal to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, Mr. Andrews and Mt. Aldie hope that the beautiful Indian Spring Trail and historic spring will be a natural wonder that the citizens of Aldie might enjoy in perpetuity."

Attorney James P. Campbell and paralegal Suzanne Powell of Campbell Flannery represented Mt. Aldie at both trials and in both appeals. Mr. Campbell and Mrs. Powell were aided by attorney Matthew Clark, also of Campbell Flannery, after the second trial, and on the second appeal. Campbell Flannery represents individual and corporate clients in complex litigation matters in the state and federal courts of the Northern Virginia Metropolitan region. If you are in need of legal assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the firm at (703) 771-8344.

APPELLATE UPDATE

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. A copy of the Supreme Court's previous memorandum opinion in this case can be found here: http://www.courts.state.va.us/opinions/opnscvwp/1160305.pdf

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. Mr. Emmert's blog post may be found here: https://virginia-appeals.com/what-a-difference-50-years-make/#.XwjLKabsbaI

Given the slim odds of having Petitions for Appeal granted, Campbell Flannery is honored to present another appeal on behalf of Mount Aldie, LLC. Our firm is available to assist with appeals in both state and federal courts.

On July 8, 2020, the Supreme Court of Virginia entered a Seventh Order Extending the Declaration of Judicial Emergency through August 9, 2020. Significantly, unlike prior Orders, today's Order states that the tolling period that began on March 16, 2020, will end on July 19, 2020. This means that Statutes of Limitations deadlines and other deadlines that were previously tolled in March of this year will begin running again soon.

A link to the Order is posted below. If you have any questions about how this Order impacts your legal rights in Virginia, please do not hesitate to contact us.

[06/05/20]   Paycheck Protection Program Loans - Important changes to terms for loan forgiveness.

Late Wednesday, the United States Senate adopted House Resolution 7010 that modifies the terms and conditions to apply for loan forgiveness. Although the Bill has not yet been signed into law, the following are high points that may impact your loan:

• You will have until December 31, 2020 to re-employ your workforce to the same number of full-time employees (or equivalent) at the same level of compensation as of February 15, 2020.

• If your business is not in a position to rehire or replace employees by December 31, 2020, you may still be eligible for loan forgiveness. The legislation is unclear about this determination at this time and we are awaiting guidance from SBA.

• The mandatory spending requirement for wages has been reduced from 75% to 60%. The permitted expenditure for rent, utilities, and interest has been increased from 25% to 40%.

• The deadline to apply for conversion of your loan to a grant (loan forgiveness) is now extended to 10 months after the date that you received your funding.

There are other minor changes to the Bill that impact repayment terms, if you are unable to spend your PPP loan proceeds in the manner specified hereinabove.

Please call us should you have any questions as to how these new terms and conditions apply to you and your business. We will continue to provide additional updates as the SBA issues guidelines and regulations for implementation of the new legislation.
