Richmond, Va, 16 December 2011:  Incoming Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment, Jr. (R-James City) issued the following statement regarding the Opinion and Order handed down earlier today by Richmond Circuit Court Judge Beverly W. Snukals:

“Judge Snukals has issued an order that is comprehensive, sound, and exceedingly well-reasoned.  I am impressed by the care, thought, and time Judge Snukals clearly invested in authoring this decision.  Giving full consideration to the Judge’s order, it is my hope that Senator McEachin and the Senate Democratic Caucus will realize the futility of pursuing this matter further and begin to prepare appropriately for the important work of the upcoming session.”
