|The Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas|
Anyone wishing to review a copy of this Order may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I send thanks to Attorney Neil O'Donnell of the O'Donnell Law Offices for bringing this decision to my attention.
Commentary: This decision of Judge Burke is notable in that Judge Burke had twice previously denied Motions to Compel Depositions of Claims Representatives in context of post-Koken cases by Order only. See e.g. Garret v. Griffin, No. 17274-Civil-2012 (C.P. Luz. Co. Oct. 4, 2013 Burke, J.); Krzynefski v. Bish, No. 16643-Civil-2012 (C.P. Luz. Co. Oct. 4, 2013 Burke, J.).
Also, there are other Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas decisions allowing for claims representative depositions in post-Koken matters, including a decision by Judge William H. Amesbury in the case of Paulewicz v. State Farm, No. 10655-Civil-2009 (C.P. Luz. Co. Feb. 1, 2010 Amesbury, J.), as well as the decision of Boyle v. Progressive, No. 8815-Civil-2014 (C.P. Luz. Co. Nov. 3, 2015 Amesbury, J.).
