No “piggyback appeal” from General District Court in Virginia.
When ever there is a counterclaim or cross-claim asserted in General District Court, you should keep in mind that if the adverse party appeals, you do not have a “piggy-back appeal” but must appeal any adverse decision on your own.
Law invites parties to file defensive appeals from General District Court
File the appeal from Virginia General District Court – you can always withdraw it.
If the other side might appeal, and you would want your claim heard if theirs is heard on appeal – file an appeal in General District Court or be at the clerk’s office until closing on the 10th day to make sure the opposing party does not file without you filing your appeal.
