Questions about "Repealed" VA code


Recommended Posts

Need some clarification. I just found this on justia under VA. Does this mean the codes listed are no longer in effect? Meaning You don't have to prove consent or the other way around? It is listed as repealed so I am not sure how to read this. Thanks.

-------------------------------------------

Title 11 - CONTRACTS.

Chapter 6 - Credit Cards (11-30 thru 11-34)

11-31 - (Repealed effective October 1, 2010) Cardholder not liable in absence of request for, consent to issuance of or use of card.

Virginia 2010 Code All US State Codes

§ 11-31. (Repealed effective October 1, 2010) Cardholder not liable in absence of request for, consent to issuance of or use of card.

A cardholder, who receives a credit card from an issuer, which such cardholder has not requested nor consented in writing to the issuance of such credit card, nor used the credit card, shall not be liable for any amount owing because of a use of the credit card. The failure to destroy or return an unsolicited credit card shall not be evidence of such request or consent nor shall it constitute negligence on the part of the cardholder. Use by an authorized agent of the cardholder shall be the equivalent of use by the cardholder. The burden of proving the authority of an agent shall be upon the issuer.

(1970, c. 324.)

2010 Virginia Code

Title 11 - CONTRACTS.

Chapter 6 - Credit Cards (11-30 thru 11-34)

11-33 - (Repealed effective October 1, 2010) Costs and attorney's fee in suit on card; evidence of request or consent.

Virginia 2010 Code All US State Codes

§ 11-33. (Repealed effective October 1, 2010) Costs and attorney's fee in suit on card; evidence of request or consent.

In any suit arising out of the use of a credit card, where the request, consent, or use as required by § 11-31 is denied and is not proved, and judgment shall be for the defendant, the court shall assess against the issuer all court costs and shall award the defendant a reasonable attorney's fee. For purposes of this section a certified copy of such request or consent shall be admissible as evidence that such request or consent was obtained.

(1970, c. 324.)
