Remembering Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leroy Hassell

The state’s first African- American Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court continues to make history days after his sudden passing at a relatively young age.  Leroy Hassell is the first person to lie in state at the State Capitol rotunda since Speaker A.L. Philpott in 1991 … and the first African-American ever to receive that honor.  Virginia Public Radio’s Tommie McNeil has more from the Capitol.
