New PBA Civil Litigation Update Case Summaries

The Summer 2011 issue of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Civil Litigation Update is now available online. I contributed two case summaries to this issue.

One of the things I enjoy about writing for this publication is that I am often forced to cover cases outside of my usual practice. It's difficult to sort out the law sometimes, but it's a valuable practice. For example, in this issue I wrote about the Deficiency Judgment Act and Petitions to Fix Fair Market Value. My other summary covers a Pennsylvania procedural issue: "Superior Court Holds Party Must File Post-Trial Motions, Not Direct Appeal, Following Trial Judge’s Assessment of Damages on Remand."
