Prosecutor: Duty to Not Comment on Cases  — From Parisa Dehghani-Tafti: “As your Commonwealth’s Attorney, however, I can never comment publicly on ongoing investigations — for even my comments could interfere with the investigative work by our dedicated police… even after an investigation is complete and an arrest has been made, I am still duty-bound by something called Rule 3.6 to refrain from certain public comments.” [Twitter]

Home Hunts Heating Back Up — “Homebuyers are returning to the market in Northern Virginia in early 2023, with mortgage rates steadily declining over the past two months, according to real estate experts.
