The top story this morning is the preliminary objections being denied in the family courthouse suit.

Below the fold on Page 1, reporter Gina Passarella writes that Cozen O’Connor has asked the state Superior Court to reopen the discontinued lawsuit against it filed by Wolf Block lawyer John Loalbo, Rebecca Rosenberger Smolen, Kevin O’Connor and Lynne Gold-Bikin. Cozen wishes to get a ruling that the firm as never properly served a writ and therefore the statute of limitations cannot be tolled on the plaintiffs’ claims.
In this week’s Young Lawyer column on Page 5, Farbod Farnia writes about how to use document review work to enhance a resume.
In a Health Care Law column on Page 7, Vasilios J. Kalogredis and Karilynn Bayus write that the OIG has approved arrangements for pre-authorization services.
