PHILADELPHIA – A continuance has been ordered for a case management conference in a personal injury case against an energy company and a steel company.
On Wednesday, Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Judge John M. Younge granted a continuance in Clifton Heights resident George McNulty’s lawsuit against Kinder Morgan, Inc. (in addition to its various operating arms) of Houston, Texas and USX Corporation (which does business as U.S. Steel) of Pittsburgh.
A case management conference was originally slated for this past Wednesday, but Younge postponed the conference until April 14, in Court chambers at Philadelphia City Hall.
Younge’s order stated no further continuances would be issued and counsel must be ready to address all relevant issues. Further, if the matter could be resolved in the interim, counsel was directed to contact the Case Management Unit.
McNulty initiated legal action against the defendants on June 23 through a Writ of Summons, and was directed by the Court on July 24 to file a complaint or suffer a Judgment of Non Pros. The Writ of Summons was then re-issued on July 29.
The plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000 in this case.
The plaintiff is represented by Arthur L. Bugay of Galfand Berger, in Philadelphia.
The defendants are represented by Robert D. Billet and Lauren B. Plevinsky, of Billet & Associates, also in Philadelphia.
