En Banc Rehearing in Tristani (DPW Lien Case) Denied

I recently reported on the case of Tristani v. Richman,  No. 09-3537, No. 09-3538 (3rd Cir. June 29, 2011 Sloviter, Hardiman, Pollak, J.) (Opinion by Hardiman) (Pollak, dissenting), in which the Third Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the right of the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare to pursue its lien in personal injury matters.  Here's a link to the Tort Talk post on that topic:

I have been advised that the Petition for Rehearing En Banc in this case was denied last week.  I thank Attorney Patrick J. Loughren of the Pittsburgh law firm of Loughren, Loughren & Loughren PC for the update.
