NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN VIRGINIA APPELLATE PROCEDURE
Elwood Earl Sanders, Jr.

I. You Must Assign Error to the Court of Appeals if You Are Appealing
from the Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court

II. You Must Always Watch for the Dreaded 5A:18/5:25 Rule Even if the
Court of Appeals Did Not Mention it or Reached the Merits

III. The Court of Appeals’ Stricter Interpretation on the Timeliness of Motions
for Leave to File a Late Transcript Was Overturned by the Supreme Court
of Virginia in LaCava v. Commonwealth, Record No. 110711
(March 2, 2012)

IV. New Cases Decided Recently at the Supreme Court in the Aftermath of
LaCava Demonstrate the Critical Importance of Briefs in Opposition.
The Court May Grant Appeal and So if You Think the Trial Court was
Correct, File the Brief in Opposition

V. A New Rule on Rehearings After a Decision on the Merits at the Supreme
Court

VI. A New Decision on Commonwealth’s Pre-Trial Appeals to the Court of
