This article encompasses two proposals for change in the law of the Commonwealth of Virginia, one procedural and the other substantive. A proposed class action procedure law and a substantive consumer fraud law are set forth in the appendix and discussed, herein. Credit law reform is beyond the scope of this article. The proposals are independent, although similar, in that they are designed to help the small claimant obtain relief for injuries for which there is presently no practical remedy under Virginia law.
