**Equity is the area of law dealing with rights and obligations not involving the payment of money. If you are asking the court to force somebody to do something or not do something you are appearing “in equity.” Although Virginia Courts merged the concepts of law (seeking money damages) and equity (seeking court intervention in private behavior) in 2006, all of the standards and defenses for suits in equity remained.
