01-079 The Honorable William C. Mims
Member, Senate of Virginia
Every offer or extension of consumer credit within Commonwealth must be in compliance with Federal Truth-in-Lending Act and Regulation Z. State law claims are precluded where conduct forming basis of claim is regulated by federal law. Borrower who disputes lender’s ability to establish cut-off or reasonable hour for posting payments to his account is limited substantively and procedurally to remedies and recovery allowed under federal law; is prohibited from recasting his claim under other state law theories.
00-076 The Honorable J.S. Walton
Sheriff for King William County
Authority of King William County sheriff’s office on Mattaponi and Pamunkey Indian reservations in county. Same protections of law of Commonwealth are extended to tribal members as are extended to nonmembers. King William County sheriff’s office may exercise same law-enforcement authority on Pamunkey and Mattaponi Indian reservations as elsewhere in county—may serve legal process, arrest warrants, and subpoenas, and investigate misdemeanors and felonies.
