The state Superior Court has rubbed out insurance reimbursements for unlicensed massage therapists unlawfully performing the work of licensed physical therapists.
In a significant victory for uninsured drivers who are victims of accidents through no fault of their own, a federal judge has predicted that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is poised to lift a court-imposed ban on their seeking awards of economic damages.
In Corbin v. Khosla, PICS No. 08-2095 (E.D. Pa. Dec. 15, 2008) Slomsky, J. (10 pages), U.S. District Judge Joel H. Slomsky found that although the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law specifically prohibits an uninsured motorist from recovering first-party benefits in a suit against an insurer, the law includes no such bar for suits against alleged third-party tortfeasors.

Left-lane slowpokes drive you crazy?
The words ‘move over’ — even if readable in the rearview mirror — may not mean much to them, but a ticket might. Some states are cracking down.
In these days of longer commutes and simmering tempers, nothing seems to set off already-testy motorists like the left-lane camper — the guy or gal who drives in the passing lane and bars faster drivers from easily passing. Web sites have cropped up to educate other drivers, or to vent. There’s a (somewhat painful) YouTube song called “Keep Right.”
Even bigwigs get frustrated. Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, weary of having his limo slowed down by such left-lane pokies, ordered an aide to have the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission install signs a few years ago reading “Keep Right, Pass Left. It’s the Law.”
And now some states are cracking down on left-lane campers, both to keep traffic moving and to tamp down the road rage that goes from zero-to-60 faster than ever before.
That’s not just a pretext. Last year, a driver was arrested on Interstate 79 outside Pittsburgh after allegedly brandishing a semiautomatic pistol at a driver who was on his tail.
