Fairfax County Park Authority On Supreme Court Decision

The Fairfax County Park Authority today released the following statement with regard to Friday's Supreme Court of Virginia decision on Lewinsville Park:

The Fairfax County Park Authority Board is disappointed with the ruling of the Supreme Court of Virginia in the Lewinsville Park case. It should be noted that the Supreme Court ruled against the Park Authority on technical grounds, and did not rule on the underlying merits of the case related to whether Lewinsville Park is a public use.

Under the rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia, the Park Authority has the right to request a rehearing from the Supreme Court. We intend to request a rehearing from the Supreme Court in order to rectify this matter. Therefore, the appeal process is still underway and there has not yet been a final ruling of the Supreme Court.
