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.
