Movies and television give many people here in Pennsylvania and elsewhere a certain idea about how things go once they step foot in the courtroom. The cinematic versions of civil litigation often fall short of the real process. Those heading into court for any civil matter may benefit from a basic understanding of how it works.
Whenever a Pennsylvania news outlet or one of the state's residents requests public information, it could be denied. The person or entity requesting the information does not have to accept this response without further inquiry since the public agency must have a compelling reason to deny the request. In this case, the state's Right to Know Law allows for an appeal, but that may not be the best way to resolve the dispute.
Litigation is not always the best way to resolve a problem you have with another party. Perhaps you tried to work out the issue on your own and think that now, looking for resolution through Pennsylvania's civil courts is the only solution but that may not be true. You may be able to make use of an alternative dispute resolution method to reach the best possible solution.
It’s no secret that owning a business is stressful. While you are juggling responsibilities to keep the doors open and the customers happy, you may not have time to safeguard your business against potential fraud, especially when it comes to employee theft.
