“Judge Anne Bonwill Shockley in late July, Shockley dismissed all but two of the seven counts brought by several condo associations against the City of Virginia Beach and Westminister-Canterbury.”

View article at WAVY .com:

The judge did leave open the possibility for the condo owners’ legal team to amend one of their counts and come before the court again.

“It’s not over, not yet,” Jeanne Lauer, the attorney for the condo owners, said Tuesday.

We’re expecting…TRIPLETS! We are excited to partner with the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad (City of Virginia Beach) on THREE new Wheeled Coach Type 1 ambulances.
