Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Lost evidences of debt. Adds "contract" and "open account agreement" to documents evidencing debt upon which a civil action may be maintained where no written evidence of those documents exists. The bill requires the plaintiff to verify under oath that the evidence of debt has been lost or destroyed and eliminates the requirement for a bond. This modification tracks with current procedure in many Virginia courts. Where a copy of the lost original exists, the bill requires the court to give effect to the copy as if the original had been placed in evidence.
