The Supreme Court of Virginia granted a motion filed by the Virginia Press Association and other media organizations to be a friend of the court in a case involving The Virginian-Pilot.
Attorneys on behalf of the VPA and eight media organizations on June 28 filed a motion to participate as amicus curiae in the case Philip D. Webb v. Virginian-Pilot Media Companies LLC. On July 30, the court granted the motion despite objections from the plaintiff.
"Upon consideration whereof, the motion is granted and the brief amici curiae is considered filed," the court document reads.
