Pochettino Gets Precedential Win in Commonwealth Court

Casey Pochettino, an associate in the firm's Philadelphia office, successfully represented her client in an appeal taken to the Commonwealth Court by the Claimant.  The issues of the case involved legal and factual questions concerning when or whether a traveling employee is in the course and scope of employment when involved in a motor vehicle accident after attending an after hours social event with co-workers.

Following oral argument, the Commonwealth Court denied Claimant's claim for workers' compensation benefits in a precedential decision, finding that the Claimant was outside the course and scope of his employment when the accident occurred.
