Circuit Court Rules in Favor of Alexandria in Wales Alley Case

Page updated on Nov 19, 2015 at 10:04 AM

The Circuit Court for the City of Alexandria has ruled in the City’s favor in the case between Alexandria and the Old Dominion Boat Club involving Wales Alley. The case had been remanded back to the Circuit Court for further proceedings after the City and the owner of 106 South Union Street had successfully appealed an earlier ruling to the Supreme Court of Virginia.

The court’s order finds that when the alley was implicitly dedicated and accepted by the City as a public way, whatever residual interest or easement the Boat Club may have had was extinguished.
