Description

Virginia Administrative Process Act; default by nonappearing party. Establishes a mechanism to more efficiently dispose of contested matters under the Virginia Administrative Process Act where the defendant in an administrative proceeding fails to appear at a hearing without a valid excuse. Currently, unless an agency's enabling statute provides differently, there is no provision for allowing an agency to enter a default order in a case in which the defendant fails to appear at a hearing.
