Hurt v. Caldwell

In Hurt v. Caldwell, 222 Va. 91, 98, 279 S.E.2d 138, 142 (1981), the Supreme Court of Virginia held that a building permit issued by a municipal zoning administrator was a nullity because the permit application did not comply with a local zoning ordinance. Additionally, the Court reversed the trial court's direction to the city to treat the building permit as the initial step in correctly completing the application process pursuant to the ordinance.
