Case law is that body of law consisting of written decisions from various courts reported in volumes referred to as reporters that are published by legal publishing houses such as West and LexisNexis and others.Not every decision rendered by every court is reported (published) in one of the reporters. The vast majority of cases decided by courts are never reported through any publication. The case law that is reported on the pages that follow is limited to Virginia case law and covers the whole breadth of tort law from negligence to medical malpractice to product liability to premises liability and beyond.
