In Bashman news from Philadelphia: Today, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania issued this decision affirming the judgment in a case in which I wrote the Brief for Plaintiff/Appellee. Additional background on the case can be accessed here.

As noted in this earlier post, I was unavailable to argue the appeal because that same day I was arguing two other appeals before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. No decisions have issued yet in those other two cases.
