Another Post-Koken Decision Out of Luzerne County In Favor of Consolidation

On June 25, 2010, Judge Thomas F. Burke, Jr. of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas entered an Order overruling a tortfeasor's Preliminary Objections in the post-Koken case of Rinker v. Kellar and State Farm, No. 11036 of 2009 (Luz. Co. June 25, 2010, Burke, J.) thereby allowing the third party liability claims and the UIM claim to proceed in a consolidated fashion.

The Post-Koken Scorecard has been updated with this case. To view the Post-Koken Scorecard, scroll down the right-hand column and click on the link.

I thank the prevailing Plaintiff's attorney, Neil O'Donnell of the O'Donnell Law Offices in Kingston, Pennsylvania for bringing this case to my attention.
