New Citations of Note

Here's the new Westlaw citation for the post-Koken opinionn in the case of Firoozifard v. Krome and State Farm, 2010 WL 2666306, No. C-48-Civil-2009-14369 (Northampton Co. June 21, 2010 Beltrami, J.)(Court denied a third party tortfeasor defendant's motion to sever the third party liability claims from the UIM and UM claims; court also notes that insurance issues can be kept from jury and the task of applying third party credit to determine UIM award can be kept away from jury and handled by the court only after the verdict).




Also, here's the new Atlantic Second Reporter citation for the case of Gormley v. Edgar, 995 A.2d 1197 (Pa.Super. 2010)(The Superior Court panel, consisting of Judge Gantman, Judge Bowes, and Senior Judge Kelly ruled that, where the Plaintiff made allegations in the Complaint that she sustained “anxiety” as a result of the accident, which is a recognized mental health disorder, the Plaintiff put her mental health status at issue. As such, the Superior Court found that the trial court properly ruled that the defense was entitled to discovery of medical records pertaining to the Plaintiff’s pre-accident mental health treatment records.).
