The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., Reading, PA, are trial lawyers, and carefully monitor the rules governing the trial of cases in Pennsylvania.
By Order dated January 8, 2014, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court adopted Pennsylvania Rule of Judicial Administration No. 1910, which, in part, provides that a judge may authorize the use of electronic broadcasting, televising, recording and taking photographs in the courtroom during non-jury civil proceedings, excluding support, custody or divorce proceedings. No witness or party that expresses any prior objection to the judge may be photographed nor may the testimony of such witness or party be broadcast or telecast. Permission for broadcasting, televising, recording and photographing of any non-jury civil proceeding must first be expressly granted by the judge, and under such conditions as the judge may prescribe in accordance with the guidelines contained in the rule.
The new rule becomes effective on July 1, 2014.
The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C. have successfully represented many victims of serious injury before the Pennsylvania courts.
