"Interim Issues Requiring Appellate Review—Pennsylvania’s Collateral Order Doctrine: Lessons From The Barnes Foundation Case And The 30 Years Of Jurisprudence Preceding It"
Published in the October 2006 Pennsylvania Bar Association
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 Mr. Solano and Mr. Merenstein were counsel for the prevailing party.
