In the case of Green v. The Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania, 2021 Pa. Super. 2009 (Pa. Super. Oct. 19, 2021 Bowes, J.), the court addressed the rules surrounding Certificate of Merit, the failure to produce one, and the possible sanctions as a result.
The Pennsylvania Superior Court described its opinion in this case as a “cautionary tale for attorneys or venture outside their area of expertise into unfamiliar specialized area of litigation without educating themselves on the applicable rules and law.”
