Our client was a young man driving a motorcycle. He was severely injured when a deputy sheriff negligently pulled out in front of him. The county offered no settlement, relying on the fact that they felt the deputy was immune was suit. The jury awarded our client $375,000 and the county appealed the case to the Supreme Court of Virginia. Mr. Glass argued the case and the Court held that deputy sheriffs were not immune from suit for their negligence in simple driving situations. This was a very important victory for citizens of Virginia.
