Correctional Services tries to bring healing to Boland bombing victims - 17 September Stephanus Coetzee, who was a member of the white supremacist group Wit Wolve, returned to the Boland town to say sorry for the killing spree he went on 17 years ago. On Monday he returned to the scene of the crime as part of a Correctional Services project to try to bring healing to the community. Stephanus Coetzee, convicted murderer said:
The averment that the employees acted in the scope of their employment created a rebuttable presumption, applicable at the pleading stage as well as at trial, that they committed tortious acts in the scope of their duties of employment and in the service for which they were engaged.
Plaintiff did not allege that the employer authorized, directed, ratified or performed the tortious acts, or that the employees were corporate officers or authorized to act, hence the circuit court correctly sustained a demurrer to a claim of direct liability of the employer for breach of the duty of non-disclosure.
While a statute may define the standard of care where there is an underlying common-law duty, the doctrine of negligence per se does not create a cause of action where none otherwise exists.
Thus, a demurrer was properly sustained on the negligence per se claim. The judgment is affirmed in part and reversed in part, and the case is remanded. The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded for entry of a new sentencing order. At a revocation proceeding, a probationer is entitled to cross-examine adverse witnesses, unless the hearing body specifically finds good cause for not allowing confrontation, under a balancing test that requires the court to weigh his interests in cross-examining accusers against the interests of the prosecution in denying confrontation, or a reliability test that permits the admission of hearsay if it possesses substantial guarantees of trustworthiness.
Accordingly, the circuit court did not violate his right to confront witnesses against him, and the judgment of the Court of Appeals upholding the revocation of probation is affirmed.
Although the grantor may reserve the narrow strip to the center of the road from a conveyance, that must be done expressly.
Quantity designations are regarded as the least certain mode of describing land, and hence must yield to description by boundaries and distances. The judgment of the circuit court is reversed and final judgment is entered in favor of the parcel owner.

Because the circuit court erred in finding that the decision to classify this student as an out-of-state student was arbitrary, capricious, and contrary to law, the judgment is reversed and final judgment is entered for the university. An unwarned voluntary admission made before Miranda warnings are given must be suppressed, but admissibility of statements after such warnings will turn on whether they are knowingly and voluntarily made, considering the surrounding circumstances and the entire course of police conduct with respect to the suspect.
Thus, the jury as fact-finder and the trial court in ruling on the defense motion to set aside the verdict were wholly justified in rejecting the claim that he only acted out of general malevolence, without the required specific intent.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals upholding the convictions is affirmed. The restated question is answered in the affirmative. An attorney involved substantially complied with the Rules of Professional Conduct and any failure to obtain consent in writing before entering a business relationship with the client did not rise to the level of a violation of public policy that requires voiding portions of a contract.
The judgment of the circuit court is affirmed. In contrast, an elevated duty of care is imposed upon a property owner that operates an inn on its premises, obligating the innkeeper to take every reasonable precaution to protect the person and property of their guests and boarders.
The plaintiff did not establish an innkeeper-guest relationship between herself and the defendants under the facts presented here. Virginia law recognizes two theories upon which a duty to warn or protect against criminal assault by a third party: In this case, the amended complaint against several defendants alleging, among other things, that a taxicab fleet operator and dispatching service assumed a duty to warn cab drivers of suspicious calls from potential riders and was negligent in fulfilling that duty, was premised on an implied undertaking, and was therefore insufficient to state a tort claim based on the concept of assumption of duty.
The judgment is affirmed. Wells Fargo Bank, N. The disposition is affirmed.
