The civil war in Sudan has been going on longer than Opio's been alive. He was still "a kid," he says, when he and his aunt escaped the violence. They lived in a refugee camp in Uganda and left Africa only three years ago. [44:10] ((SO REFUGEES ARE ALLOWED TO COME TO UNITED STATES THROUGH THEIR BACKGROUND.

Realizing Kaine's a Harvard Law School graduate, Opio asked him to recount some of the cases he's handled. With nine-year old daughter, Annella, at his side, the Lieutenant Governor cited what he said was the biggest civil rights verdict in America... one involving an insurance company.
