Article by Mark Perry on State’s Medical Malpractice Venue Rule appears in Scranton Times

Thursday, April 11th, 2019

An article written by Mark Perry appeared in the Scranton Times on April 7, 2019. The article entitled “Maintain state’s medical malpractice venue rule” discusses the Civil Procedural Rules Committee of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s proposal to eliminate on the state’s most important medical malpractice reforms agains forum shopping. The law currently requires medical professional liability actions against health care providers be brought only in the county where the cause of action occurred. Under the new rule, defendants may be sued in any county where they “regularly conduct business” or have a “registered office or principal place of business.” Mark wrote that the proposed repeal of the venue rule is misguided as the data on which the committee relies does not support its decisions. Furthermore, the elimination of the venue rule in medical malpractice actions would likely have an adverse impact on health care providers, exposing them to increased settlement amounts and jury awards, as well as encouraging forum shopping.
