Witherspoon v. McDowell-Wright

Pennsylvania Superior Court

October 23, 2020

Witherspoon v. McDowell-Wright is an important read for any lawyer whose client is deceased.  Rule 502 of the Rules of Appellate Procedure governs the scenario and “permits any party to make a suggestion of death on the record. The Rule then states that proceedings may be had as this court directs. The open-endedness of this Rule is evident.” If your clients are alive, skip this case.
