Assignments of Error

    1. The trial court erred in holding "of a proprietary nature" as used in 2.2-3705.4(4) means "a thing or property owned or in the possession of one who manages and controls them."

    2. The trial court erred in allowing the University to demand payment for the cost of exclusion review of documents sought.

    4. The trial court erred in finding UVA carried its burden of proof that the records withheld [exclusively] under 2.2-3705.4(4) meet each of the requirements for exclusion.
