Description

Claim for attorney fees. Aligns the provision for a claim for attorney fees to be paid out of money or property under control of the court with Rule 3:25 of the Rules of Supreme Court of Virginia by providing that the claim for such attorney fees shall be made in a complaint, petition, or other proceeding. The bill removes the provision that provides that such attorney fees may also be paid where the parties are notified in writing that application will be made to the court. This bill is a recommendation of the Boyd-Graves Conference. Read the Bill »
