The Circuit Court Violated Virginia law and due process by allowing the Commonwealth to expert-shop and admitting only its second, illegally obtained expert opinion. The Circuit Court violated Virginia law and due process by arbitrarily precluding Mr. Baughman from presenting testimony by Dr. Gravers and Dr. Krueger in his defense at trial.
