Del. Terry Kilgore is under investigation by the Virginia State Bar for possible ethical misconduct, Daniel Gilbert writes in a lengthy article for the Bristol Herald Courier. He’s accused of letting an attorney claim that Kilgore was an attorney in a case — a case that he had nothing to do with — in order to benefit from a legal standard that extends the statute of limitations when the client’s attorney is in the General Assembly and the GA is in session. Kilgore admits to the charges, but says that it was a simple misunderstanding of the law. The attorney in question has given over $25k to the Kilgores’ campaigns.
There’s a seemingly steady drip of legal problems involving the Kilgore family. If any of it has added up to anything, I don’t know about it, but maybe a reader from SWVA could provide some details.
