Bill Caroselli, our founding partner, has decided to take "of counsel" status at the firm. The change will allow Caroselli more flexibility to focus on his interests outside the firm, including his role as Chairman of the WQED Multimedia Board of Directors.
Today the Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C. law firm took two major steps in the class action lawsuit against Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett and the Pennsylvania legislature for failing to fund the adultBasic health care program as required by law. The firm filed an updated complaint that increases the number of named plaintiffs from three to 75. The plaintiffs in the case now represent 20 different counties from all over the state. The firm also filed an injunction asking the Commonwealth Court to forbid the Pennsylvania Department of the Treasury from spending or transferring any of the Tobacco Settlement Money the state is slated to receive on or about April 15, 2011 until the court has had an opportunity to rule on the adultBasic class action suit.
