Cozen O’Connor: Justices’ ‘Abnormal’ Requests Pose Legislative Challenge

Justices’ ‘Abnormal’ Requests Pose Legislative Challenge

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Jim Schultz, chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Government Law and Regulatory Affairs Practice Group, discusses new Gaming Act developments from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the General Assembly. Jim says that the Supreme Court Justices showed “restraint and prudence” in their requests to the state legislature, but the bureaucratic process could upset the court’s deadlines for new legislation. Jim explains, “Once you’re opening up the Gaming Act once again, you’re going to see interests from all over the state [weighing in]. Representatives and senators are going to be advocating for their constituents.” Jim adds that by putting the onus on the legislature, the court is telling lawmakers, “If you don’t fix it, it’s on you.”
