No Habla Espanol?

The Luzerne County Courthouse
According to the May 16, 2014 edition of the Luzerne Legal Register, the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas has issued an Order amending Luzerne County Local Rule of Civil Procedure 1018.1 to require that any notice to defend attached to any Complaint filed by a Plaintiff or any Complaint filed by a Defendant against an Additional Defendant shall begin with a form Notice to Defend provided which sets forth the required language in both English and Spanish.  To review a copy of the proposed new form Notice to Defend required in cases in the Luzerne County Court of Common click this ENLACE, por favor.  

According to the May 2, 2014 Order of Court, this Rule will go into effect thirty (30) days after the date of publication of this amendment in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.  As of the writing of this blog post, I am not sure when that publication will occur).
