Presented On Post-Koken Issues At 2015 Pennsylvania Conference of State Trial Judges in Hershey, PA


Last Friday presented an update on the current status of Pennsylvania automobile accident law to an audience of trial court judges from around the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania at the July 2015 Pennsylvania Conference of State Trial Judges in Hershey, PA.   Also on the panel was Attorney Scott Cooper of the Harrisburg, PA law firm of Schmidt Kramer as well as the course coordinator and co-presenter, Judge Terrence R. Nealon of the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas.

I focused my part of the presentation on the current status of issue of severance vs. consolidation of Post-Koken cases involving Bad Faith claims, as well as on general Post-Koken discovery issues.  I also provided an update on Facebook Discovery decisions and decisions pertaining to claims for punitive damages in auto accident cases involving cell phone use by defendant drivers.

 Many of these topics will also be covered at the upcoming Tort Talk Expo 2015 CLE set for September 24, 2015 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  For more information on that CLE and Cocktail Reception, along with registration information, please go to www.TortTalk.com and see the LINKS in the upper right hand corner of the blog.
