Superior Court Affirms Entry of Judgment Non Pros in Favor of Medical Malpractice Defendants Based Upon Deficient Language in Certificates of Merit


In the non-precedential decision by the Pennsylvania Superior Court in the case of Monger v. Encompass Health Rehab. Hosp. of Reading, LLC, No. 862 M.D.A. 2021 (Pa. Super. Feb. 10, 2022 Olson, J., Kunselman, J., and Pellegrini, J.) (Op. by Olson, J.), the court affirmed a trial court’s denial of a Plaintiff’s Motion to Open Judgments of Non Pros entered in favor of the medical malpractice Defendants which judgments were entered based upon Certificates of Merit that were found to be deficient, in part, with regards to the language that is statorily required to be contained in such documents.
