Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The proper course in all cases involving statutory construction is to search out and follow the true intent of the legislature, and to adopt that sense of the words which harmonizes best with the context, and promotes in the fullest manner the apparent policy and objects of the legislature.
  • While legislative intent must be gathered from the words used, unreasonable or absurd results must not be reached by too strict adherence to literal interpretation. In addition, statutes in pari materia must be considered together in construing their various material provisions. This requires that the literal meaning of separate provisions, if in apparent conflict, must yield to a reasonable and fair interpretation to be gathered from the context, the subject matter and the reason and spirit of the law. Similarly, a provision of a section of a statute ought not to receive a mere literal interpretation, when it would contravene the intention of the legislature apparent from the other sections and provisions thereof. The courts do not isolate particular words or phrases but rather examine a statute in its entirety. In doing so, the courts have a duty to interpret the several parts of a statute as a consistent and harmonious whole so as to effectuate the legislative goal. Furthermore, where applicable the courts must keep in mind the evil sought to be corrected by the legislature.
