Another Lackawanna County Decision in Favor of Consolidation of Post-Koken Claims

On May 18, 2011, Senior Visiting Judge Harold A. Thomson, Jr., of the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas issued a decision in the post-Koken case of Yesu v. Arcieri and Encompass Insurance Company of America, No. 2010-CV-9877 (Lacka. Co. May 18, 2011, Thomson, S.J.), in which he overruled the Preliminary Objections of the tortfeasor Defendant seeking a severance of the negligence claims filed against the tortfeasor from the breach of contract/bad faith claims filed against the UIM carrier.

I thank the prevailing attorney, Carl J. Poveromo of the Scranton, Pennsylvania law firm of Rinaldi & Poveromo for bringing this case to my attention.
