Collins v. Commonwealth

In Collins v. Commonwealth, 30 Va. App. 443, 449, 517 S.E.2d 277, 280 (1999), the Court held that "the liberty interest in intimate association is rooted in the necessity of affording 'certain kinds of highly personal relationships a substantial measure of sanctuary from unjustified interference by the State.'" Collins, 30 Va. App. at 452, 517 S.E.2d at 281. The Court further held that the barment notices prohibiting non-residents from coming upon housing authority property do not violate the "right of association" protected by the First Amendment or the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. See Collins, 30 Va. App. at 450-53, 517 S.E.2d at 280-82.
