Trial Court Inter-Policy Stacking Case Appealed

I recently reported on the April 24, 2010 trial court decision by Judge Robert L. Boyer in the Venango County Court of Common Pleas case of Heller v. State Farm, No. 408-2008 (Venango Co. 2010 Boyer, J.) that serves to clarify certain issues involving inter-policy stacking in UIM cases.

The decision also provides an excellent explanation the interplay of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decisions on the issue in the Craley and Generette decisions, "a topic that still hurts when I try to wrap my head around it."

For more details on that decision, click this link to that blog post: http://www.torttalk.com/2010/05/clarifying-opinion-out-of-venango.html.

By way of update, I have been informed that the Plaintiff in Heller has filed an appeal of the issues presented to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. I send thanks to Attorney Tom McDonnell of the Pittsburgh law firm of Summers, McDonnell, Hudock, Guthrie, & Skeel for this update.
