There should be no trial. if the PEOPLE want him gone then he should go,period. Leaving this up to a judge who may have questionable ethics himself is bogus. The PEOPLE should decide.

In the old days he would have just been tared and feathered and run out of town in disgrace.

This is exactly how the PEOPLE decide -- this is a textbook case of democracy in action in Virginia. It was the PEOPLE that signed the petitions that might possibly lead to his removal. Dumler did not want a jury-trial because he is afraid to face the PEOPLE, so a judge will ultimately make a ruling.

The alternative is to simply wait a few more years until his term expires. Why should the PEOPLE have to put up with him until then?

Do you have specific issues with the judge or is your comment just speculative? If there is a real issue with the judge, then Dumler has the opportunity to argue for a replacement. Again, democracy in action.

It wouldn't cost a dime if he resigned.

What are you smoking? Who are these "PEOPLE" you speak of? The "PEOPLE" who signed the petition to remove him? The "PEOPLE" who didn't sign the petition to remove him? Your ISP tagged you as from Waterford, about 150 miles from the district full of "PEOPLE" who elected Dumler. What's your interest here? What do you have against the legal system and its machinations? Why shouldn't there be a trial? Because you say so?

Let me tell you a little something, from within the Scottsville district no less. We are sick and tired of having "PEOPLE" from the outside tell us what we should or shouldn't do about Dumler.

This story says that the CA will be wanting a bill of particulars from the plaintiff. The plaintiff in this case is the "Scottsville Magisterial District".
WHO is going to be addressing this bill of particulars as the Scottsville Magisterial District?

How can this plaintiff be able to comment when there have been those on comment threads speaking in support of a transparent process, in support of Dumler, in support of the District registered voters taking care of this?

HOW can those district residents be assured that the responses to the bill of particulars represents the majority opinion to the facts?

I think they assume that since you elected him then you might need directions about how to get shed of him!

He said he plead guilty to the reduced sex charges because he did not have the funds to defend his innocense, yet he somehow is able to hire an attorney to fight this. Kinda makes you wonder how innocent he really is. It also shows his priorities are a little screwed up. I believe I would have spent everything I had and borrowed the rest to protect my name instead of taking a plea deal and then the Board of Supervisors issue would have been a moot point. He really is an idiot and conviction or not he doesn't have the mental fortitude to represent anyone properly...as a Supervisor or Attorney. Go away you little perv!

He probably took the plea because he didn't want to be railroaded by a jury of Charlottesville hypocrite women who want to nail him in revenge for every guy that ever dumped them for another woman.

The way I see it is he saved about 60Gs in legal fees by taking the plea so he is getting paid about 2000 dollars a day for each day in the slammer reading books.

If he had bet and lost he could have gotten 20 plus years.... for something NOBODY but him and the girl KNOW what really happened. Maybe she let the deal go because SHE knows it wasn't as bad as all that.

As for the chick who said it happend to her THREE times.. well there is an old joke...

Two guys from the Brewery go to Mrs Mckinnys home and inform her that her husband drowned in a giant vat of beer.

Mrs McKinney exclaims: "My poor poor Arnold, he never had a chance"

The first guy turns to the second guy and says: "never had a chance?.... he came out three times to take a leak"

Well, genius, the whole point of "well there's an old joke" is that you leave it at that. The joke is so good, well known and relevant to the situation that you need not actually tell the joke. That is called "subtlety."

As for your moniker, PLEASE tell us what you had to do to become a brother? Dance around while dressed like a jester? What was it? Please do tell.

Frats do so much good in our society. I just love to hear the stories of the little boys who all dress alike and act alike, who have funny handshakes, who call each other "brother" into old age, who have mascots.

I can see part of your pledge was never community service in an abuse shelter.

He was probably just a "townie" sneaking into the parties trying to get free beer and boink passed-out-drunk sorority girls.

The signatures of the 600 petition signatories have not been verified. The hearing was held today without verification of signatures. Very possible the number of signatures of district voters will be less than 600.

Also, per my question above. The plaintiff in this lawsuit is the Socttsville Magisterial District. WHO is speaking as the plaintiff?
Sure

Thanks for proving my point exactly. You A) Know exactly what needs to be done with Dumler despite not living in his district, and B) Insult the entire Scottsville district for good measure, while C) turning such an intelligent phrase as "get shed of him!" We must be a bunch of sheep-doing simpletons out here, after all we elected him, right? LOL. Take your attitude and shove it. Personally I'm glad he's trolling the whole county by refusing to resign. Just a little F U from us out here in the rural area to the rest of you high minded busy bodies.
Au Contraire! I do live in the district but my political leaning and vote casting don't do get dems elected. Yours on the other hand, apparantly do, thus the directive on getting shed of your little back door friend.

Under V. Code 24.2-237, once the petition is filed in a circuit court, the Commonwealth becomes the plaintiff and is represented by the Commonwealth's Attorney. The story reports that the Commonwealth's Attorney will be filing a bill of particulars. Those seeking standing in the matter will have to hire their own attorney.
