Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Under the law of the case doctrine, courts assume without deciding that there may be error in the decision of the court below. As a result, a decision that becomes the law of the case is adhered to only in the case in which it arose and does not become binding precedent in other cases.
  • Under the law of the case doctrine, when there have been two appeals in the same case, between the same parties, and the facts are the same, nothing decided on the first appeal can be reexamined on a second appeal. Right or wrong, it is binding on both the trial court and the appellate court, and is not subject to reexamination by either. For the purpose of that case, though only for that case, the decision on the first appeal is the law.
