Trial Court Says Appeal Should Be Quashed Because Party Did Not File Post-Trial Motions

In the case of Hernandez v. Grandview Hospital, No. 2018-CV-01736 (Bucks Co. Nov. 15, 2021 Mellon, J.), the court issued a Pa. R.A.P. 1925(a) Opinion in support of its decision granting a nonsuit in a medical malpractice case.

Of note, the trial court ruled that the Plaintiff’s appeal should be quashed because the Plaintiff took an appeal from the nonsuit entered in favor of the Defendant and did not first file any written Post-Trial Motions pursuant to the requirements of Pa. R.C.P. 227.1.  As such, the trial court requested that the appellate court quash this appeal.
