Ramey v. Bobbitt
In Ramey v. Bobbitt, 250 Va. 474, 463 S.E.2d 437 (1995), the plaintiff's decedent was killed on a public street adjacent to the employer's premises while on the way to work.
The employer did not provide parking for the employees, who generally parked on public streets. Id. at 476, 463 S.E.2d at 439.
The Supreme Court of Virginia held that the public street was not part of the employer's premises and it was not a place where the employer expected decedent to be for employment purposes. Id. at 479, 463 S.E.2d at 440.
The Court found that the case fell within the "going to and from work rule." Id. at 478, 463 S.E.2d at 440.
