Request Sent to Superior Court to Publish Erie v. Conley Decision

I have been informed that, on June 22, 2011, Erie Insurance served a Motion to Convert the Pennsylvania Superior Court's Memorandum Opinion in Erie Ins. Exchange v. Conley to a Published Opinion (as per Pa. R.A.P. 3519).

Tort Talkers may recall that, in that decision, the Superior Court upheld the trial court decision of Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Judge Alan Hertzberg denying a claimant's UIM and/or UM claim on the basis of the worker's compensation exclusivity provision where the claimant was injured by his employer during the course and scope of his employment.  Here's the more detailed Tort Talk post on that case:
