Six years ago- -on her first visit to a nail salon- -Carol Webb discovered certain chemicals can cause a toxic reaction in some people. She had acrylic nails put on at Top Nail Salon.
Her own nails peeled off and never grew back.

He says he had no idea what was in it, had never heard or read any warnings about it.

The bi-partisan lawsuit was brought by two state senators and some northern Virginia business and higher education leaders.

Richmond Judge Theodore Markow (MARK -oh) dismissed the suit, writing:
"Even though ... petitioners believe that the Governor's revenue forecast did not comply with statutory requirements ... "
" ... and even that the Governor 'sidestepped' procedural safeguards, it is void of language allowing the court to infer bad faith on the part of the Governor ... "
The judge says the senators and businessmen have NO precedent for legal standing, writing:
"If these individual taxpayers with no real or substantial interest were allowed to litigate this action, then virtually every taxpayer in Virginia would have standing to challenge virtually every appropriation ..."
