HARRISBURG – The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s Civil Procedural Rules Committee has green-lit standards allowing plaintiffs statewide greater leeway in where to file medical malpractice liability cases, a move cheered by personal injury attorneys and criticized by health care and business inte...

Court loosens rules where malpractice cases can be filed. PCCJR Executive Director:

“We’re going to see cases that really have no business being in, say, the city of Philadelphia,” Schroder predicted. “We’re going to see jury awards skyrocket.”

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s highest court on Thursday reversed its own two-decade-old rule that required medical malpractice cases to be filed in the county where the alleged harm occurred, a win for civil plaintiffs and the lawyers who represent them but a potentially costly change fo...

Reprinted with permission from The Legal Intelligencer August 12, 2021 By Curt Schroder Just over 10 years ago, the landmark Pennsylvania Fair Share Act (42 Pa.C.S. Section 7102) was signed into law.

Ten years ago today the Fair Share Act was signed into law. Rep. Curt Schroder, now PCCJR Executive Director, was pleased to join Governor Tom Corbett and a host of Senators and House members to announce this historic achievement. Now the Fair Share Act is threatened by activist appellate court judges intent on diluting and diminishing the intended impact of the last major civil justice reform measure passed in Pennsylvania.

PCCJR will keep fighting to preserve and strengthen the Fair Share Act.

Simon Campbell is being Sued by the PA School Board Association for A Right To Know Request in what is an obvious SLAPP or Strategic Lawsuit Against P***c Participation. The PSBA is a private business FUNDED BY school boards and their TAXPAYER MONEY.

He is not one to toy with. The first 12 minutes can be skipped as it offers no real details just his disgust.

Begin at 12:00 and see why PA should BAN and Penalize SLAPP lawsuits.
