Pennsylvania Supreme Court Rules Pennsylvania State Police Not Entitled to Subrogate Against Claimant's Tort Settlement

In the case of Pennsylvania State Police v. WCAB (Bushta), No. 14 WAP 2017 (Pa. May 29, 2018) (Op. by Todd, J.), the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed the Commonwealth Court’s decision which held that the Pennsylvania State Police does not have a right of subrogation against a claimant’s tort settlement with a tortfeasor for benefits that the claimant received under the Heart and Lung Act.

I send thanks to the prevailing Plaintiff’s attorney, Bruce S. Zero, Esquire of the Scranton, PA firm of Powell Law for bringing this case to my attention.
