How Appealing

Monday, July 15, 2019

Programming note: On Tuesday morning, I will be arguing an appeal before a three-judge panel of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.

The most newsworthy case scheduled for oral argument tomorrow before that same three-judge panel will be this case, which has been specially scheduled for argument starting at 3:30 p.m. and is expected to draw a large crowd of onlookers and media.

Additional posts will appear here on Tuesday afternoon.
