In Virginia, the court that entered the order may amend it or cancel it:

You would need to have a hearing before the court that entered the order (and presumably satisfy them that it should not be in place).

And, your anticipation is that some presently active lawyer will have a present sense recollection of the history of that property and the changing responsibilities for that bridge in 1892 and 1932? How quaint. What may be useful is if you follow the model of historical societies like Peerless Rockville and research all of the documents and deeds, recorded or included in state bills, regarding that property. Combine that with a title search and a tax roll search in Arlington to create a history...

Paul A. Prados' answer
Bills of Particulars [BoP] are used primarily in General District Courts [GDC]. Sometimes they are used in the Circuit Court. Fairfax has no special rules regarding LLC's.

The only generally special rule I would consider for an LLC as opposed to a natural person, is that a BoP submitted by an LLC must be submitted by a licensed attorney, and not a layperson member or manager for the LLC.
