Well I found it interesting.

I'd heard of the fugitive dis-entitlement doctrine (or a very similar one). Roman Polanski, tried to have appeals and various motions while a fugitive, the Court basically said no way, no how; he had to present himself to the court in order to avail himself of it in any manner.

But yes, I hadn't heard of it in Virginia before.
