Motion To Dismiss Granted in Legal Malpractice Claim

In the Nupson v. Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, LLP, No. 18-2505 (E.D. Pa. Sept. 30, 2022 Alejandro, J.), the court addressed the statute of limitations in a legal malpractice claim.

In this matter, the court found that the Plaintiff was on notice of her legal malpractice claims by the time her new attorney indicated that the Plaintiff had been allegedly harmed by the Defendants’ prior conduct and where Plaintiff had filed litigation asserting claims arising from that alleged conduct. In light of these facts in the record, the court found that the Plaintiff’s later legal malpractice claim was untimely.

As such, the Defendant law firm’s Motion to Dismiss was granted.
