Obsolete and Modified Opinions

The opinions listed in the file below were correct when issued, but must be construed in the light of subsequent legislation or holdings by the courts. Unless an opinion is indicated as formally withdrawn or has obviously been invalidated by court filing or Act of the General Assembly, it should not be disregarded entirely, but should be considered along with the indicated modification. Additionally, there may be changes in statutory or case law affecting the holding of an opinion that have not yet come to the attention of the Attorney General so as to generate a superseding or modifying opinion; therefore, sole reliance on the attached file as dispositive of the continuing validity of any opinion is imprudent. The file is intended to be an aid to, and not a substitute for, thorough and independent legal research of the topic under consideration.
