Pennsylvania Superior Court Remands Case to Trial Court For Hearing on Venue Issues

In the case of Mazzuca v. Abreu, No. 1264 EDA 2023 (Pa. Super. Feb. 12, 2024 Stabile, J., Kunselman, J., Stevens, P.J.E.)(Op. by Stevens, P.J.E.), the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that the trial court erred in determining that there were no contested issues of fact regarding the issue of proper venue.

The appellate court ruled that a remand was required so that a hearing could be conducted to determine whether venue was proper in Philadelphia based upon the plaintiff’s claim that she served the defendant at the defendant’s “office or usual place of business” pursuant to Pa.R.C.P. 402(a)(2)(iii).
