A Philadelphia County Rule 1925 Opinion Upholding Erie Insurance Forum Selection Clause

I previously reported on the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas post-Koken decision on venue in the case of Fish v. Erie Insurance Company, No. 003411, Jan. Term, 2013 (C.P. Phila. Co. 2013 New, J.), in which the court granted Erie Insurance Company’s Preliminary Objections based upon a forum selection clause and transferred venue of a UIM case from Philadelphia to Franklin County.   The original ruling was by Order only.

That case has been appealed and Judge New has issued a Rule 1925 Opinion in support of his previous decision.   Anyone wishing to review that decision may click this LINK.

I send thanks to Attorney John Statler of the Lemoyne, PA law firm of Johnson, Duffie, Stewart &
Widner for forwarding a copy of this Opinion to my attention.
