Jenkins v. Robertson

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 13, 2022

The Pennsylvania Superior Court quashed this appeal from a verdict entered after a landlord-tenant dispute. The lower court rendered a verdict in favor of the landlord after the tenant failed to appear for the arbitration and trial. When the lower court reduced the matter to an order, it stated that the tenant had “no right to a trial de novo or appeal from this decision to the Court of Common Pleas. The parties have the right to appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania within thirty (30) days of this decision.” The court then entered judgment in the landlord’s favor. The Superior Court determined that the losing party had ten days to file post-trial motions after he was provided with the verdict. But the judgment was entered simultaneously with the verdict. Therefore, the appeal was premature, and the Court remanded.
