Miles on Workers' Compensation Act "Statutory Immunity"

Yes, I realize that my last four blog entries are all links to my own articles and presentations. What can I say? The shameless self-promotion department has been working overtime. In any event, the latest issue of the PBA Civil Litigation Section Update is now available.

And yes, it includes my case summary of Patton v. Worthington Associates, Inc., 32 MAP 2013, 2014 Pa. LEXIS 788 (Pa. Mar. 26, 2014). The gist of the case is that "statutory immunity" provides general contractors with immunity from tort claims from subcontractors - but read the whole summary to get a fuller picture.

This issue also includes case summaries from my McQuaide Blasko colleagues Sebastian Conforto, Chena Glenn-Hart, Jon Stepanian, and Carolyn Smith. Enjoy!

Note: I think the newsletter is temporarily available to the public, but the archives are subscription only - don't quote me on that though.
