Merenstein, Solano Review Lessons from Barnes Case

10/01/2006

Bruce Merenstein and Carl Solano published an article in the October 2006 edition of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Quarterly titled, “Pennsylvania’s Collateral Order Doctrine: Lessons From the Barnes Foundation Case and the 30 Years of Jurisprudence Preceding It.” The article discusses both the history and recent developments of Pennsylvania’s collateral order doctrine, under which certain non-final, interlocutory orders may be reviewable. In particular, the article focuses on the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s practice of looking to federal jurisprudence under the collateral order doctrine to aid in the development of Pennsylvania’s version of the doctrine, as exemplified by that Court’s decision in the Barnes Foundation case, in which Carl and Bruce were counsel for the prevailing party.
