In an October 22, 2013 Order without Opinion in the Post-Koken case of Post v. Schnerring and Liberty Mut. Ins. Co., No. S-1887-12 (C.P. Schuylkill Co. Oct. 22, 2013 Dolbin, J.), Judge Cyrus Palmer Dolbin of the Schuylkill County Court of Common Please denied Motions to Bifurcate the trial filed by both the underinsured motorists benefits (UIM) carrier, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and the third party tortfeasor Defendant.

The Tort Talk Post-Koken Scorecard has been updated with this case and other recent cases.  The Scorecard is always freely accessible by going to Tort Talk at www.TortTalk.com and scrolling down the right hand column and clicking on the date noted under "Post-Koken Scorecard."  Here's a shortcut LINK if you want to check it out now.

I send thanks to the prevailing Plaintiff's Attorney Michael Pisanchyn of the Pisanchyn Law Firm in Scranton, PA for bringing the Post case out of Schuylkill County to my attention.

I respectfully request the readers of Tort Talk to advise of any Post-Koken decisions you may hear of so that they can be publicized in an effort to inform all attorneys of the novel common law developing in this new era of Pennsylvania automobile litigation.
