Commonwealth v. Morgan

Pennsylvania Superior Court

September 17, 2020

In Commonwealth v. Morgan, the Superior Court ruled that the trial court abused its discretion when the court denied Morgan’s Rule 600(A) motion because the Commonwealth did not exercise due diligence in bringing Morgan to trial. The Commonwealth waited approximately two years after Morgan began serving a sentence in Georgia before attempting to lodge a detainer with the proper authorities, or initiate extradition proceedings.
