The Eighth Edition offers 10 information-packed chapters addressing issues of municipal liability in detail and discusses the historical background of the continuing evolution of these issues in Pennsylvania. It further provides a detailed discussion and analysis of the Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act and Recreation Act, along with 2000 + cases cited!
The book includes practical features, such as a brief chapter-by-chapter summary, an issues checklist, sample pleadings, interrogatories, document requests and more. The summary is both a refresher outline for any practitioner and a quick, basic introduction for law clerks or paralegals assisting attorneys with a case. The issues checklist focuses on the key factors that should be considered when conducting client interviews, case evaluations, legal research, and a variety of other trial preparation tasks.
The sample pleadings and discovery documents will guide you when litigating a municipal liability case.
