All Scorecards on Tort Talk Updated


The Post-Koken Scorecard has been updated.  This Scorecard lists important cases uncovered on a variety of issues in the new form of UIM and third party lawsuits in auto accident cases.  It is periodically updated with new cases and always freely accessible.  Click this LINK to view the Post-Koken Scorecard.

The Facebook Scorecard has been updated (No new or recent cases to report).  This Scorecard lists important cases found on the issue of the discoverability of social media information on a party or a witness to a personal injury litigation.  This Scorecard is also periodically updated with new cases and is equally always freely accessible.  Click this LINK to view the Facebook Discovery Scorecard.

The Products Liability Restatement Scorecard has also been updated.  This Scorecard lists important cases on the debate of whether the Restatement (Second) of Torts or the Restatement (Third) should apply in Pennsylvania Products Liability cases.  That debate was recently settled (for the time being) by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision in Tincher v. Omega Flex.  At least one Post-Tincher case has been uncovered to date.  This Scorecard will be periodically updated with new cases and is always freely accessible.  Click HERE to view the Products Liability Restatement Scorecard.

Please note that these Scorecards can also always be viewed by going to the Tort Talk blog at and scrolling down the right hand column and clicking on the date noted under each Scorecard.

I welcome your sending copies of any Opinions or Orders that may fall under any of the topics noted above to be included in the Scorecard as a way to keep the bar apprised of the latest developments in these new areas of Pennsylvania Common Law.

As such, please do not hesitate to forward a copy of any new Post-Koken auto law decisions on any issue, any Facebook/social media discovery decisions, or any Post-Tincher products liability Opinions or Orders.  I can be reached at

Thank you very much.
