Damages for the Unthinkable -- Death of a Child

The death of a child is unthinkable and unnatural for any parent.  No sum of money can ever serve as a substitute for the tragic void from such a profound emotional and psychological loss.  Yet, under our American system of justice, Wrongful Death and Survival claims are designed to compensate one's immediate family and estate for the noneconomic and economic losses suffered.

Product Defect Cases Can Change the World

I have been doing product liability cases since 1985.  The thing to understand about a defective product case is that the product is on trial, not human conduct.  Pennsylvania follows the Restatement (Second) of Torts, Section 402A.  Under Pennsylvania Law, someone who sells any product in a defective condition unreasonably dangerous to the user or consumer or to his or her property is subject to liability for physical harm caused to the ultimate user or consumer, or to his property, if the seller is engaged in the business of selling such a product, and the product is expected to and does reach the user or consumer without a substantial change in the condition in which it is sold.  This is also known as strict liability.

Expunging the Expungement

In an effort to try to effectively expunge clients' records, a central Pennsylvania lawyer included in proposed orders that two local newspapers be ordered by the court to expunge his clients' records.  A judge signed the orders and the lawyer sent certified copies to the two newspapers which directed the newspapers to delete references to arrests of the clients that appeared earlier in the papers, and which could still be viewed on the internet.  The papers objected, and the judge reversed the order, citing the First Amendment and the strong protection given the news media.  The judge said, "I can't tell them what to do."

Even Arrestees Must Provide DNA?

The U.S. House of Representatives recently approved a bill that would give states about $75 million each to enact legislation that would mirror a federal law that requires DNA collection from people arrested for certain crimes. The federal legislation requires federal agencies to collect DNA samples from those arrested, and for the samples to be included in the FBI's Convicted Offender DNA Index System. Currently, DNA samples collected by state law enforcement are not added to the federal database.
