Graybeal v. Board of Supervisors of Montgomery County
In Graybeal v. Board of Supervisors of Montgomery County, 216 Va. 77, 216 S.E.2d 52 (1975), a bomb planted on a family car at the home of a Commonwealth's Attorney exploded and injured him.
The Commonwealth's Attorney had previously prosecuted the bomber who sought revenge for the successful murder prosecution.
The Court held the employee was in the course of the employment because the injury originated in the employment. "The course from prosecution to desire-for-revenge to injury was unbroken." 216 Va. at 80, 216 S.E.2d at 54.
