York County Trial Court Favors Severance of Post-Koken Claims

On May 20, 2010, the York County Court of Common Pleas issued an en banc decision, by Order only, granting a tortfeasor's Preliminary Objections and request for severance of the third party claims from the UIM claims in the case of Winkler v. Argabright and Allstate Ins. Co., No. 2009 -SU -001244 -01 (York Co. May 20, 2010 Chronister, Thompson, Linebaugh).

According to the Post-Koken Scorecard, this York County decision is consisted with that trial court's previous decision on this issue. Click on the Post-Koken Scorecard on the right hand column of the blog for more information.

Thanks to Attorney Tom McDonnell of the Pittsburgh office of the law firm Summers, McDonnell, Hudock, Guthrie, and Skeel for bringing this case to my attention. The Order was secured by Attorney Candace N. Edgar from the Harrisburg office of Summers, McDonnell.
