Schnader Appellate Team Secures Precedential Decision for Delaware Inmate

10/16/2012

A team of Schnader attorneys secured an important appellate victory for a Delaware inmate seeking redress for injuries caused by a now-deceased Delaware prison guard. The Third Circuit's precedential decision clarifies the law under Rule 25 of the Rules of Civil Procedure regarding substitution of parties upon the death of a defendant. In particular, it discusses often-overlooked service requirements. The team, led by Thomas W. Hazlett and Carl A. Solano, was assisted by Bruce P. Merenstein, Stephen A. Fogdall, and former Schnader attorneys Nilam A. Sanghvi and Chris W. Haaf.
