Szwerc v. Lehigh Valley Health Network

The Superior Court affirmed the trial court, which denied as untimely Szwerc’s petition for attorney’s fees. The Court held affirmed that a motion for counsel fees is properly addressed by a trial court, even though an appeal from the underlying final order was pending that could have changed the movant’s status as a prevailing party. Thus, the motion must be filed while the trial court maintains jurisdiction, i.e., no later than thirty days from the trial court’s final order.
