Yes § 8.01-428 can be used to relieve you from an order that was obtained by perpetrating a fraud upon the court; but it seems to me that you have a bigger problem than that. There appears to be judicial misconduct and bias at play and it may have to do with his relationship with the lawyers involved or his personal political slant on things. I would suggest that you go forward with this motion so that it buys you time to learn how to file an appeal if it fails.
No sure if this helps so just write me back with your other questions....
