Landlord-Tenant: Is August 7 the Busiest Day of the Year?

Litigants have already started assembling for Landlord-Tenant day at Arbitration in Allegheny County.

No. 1,545

As of 9 AM this morning, there are 45 Landlord-Tenant cases scheduled to be heard tomorrow, August 7.

Arbitration takes a vacation in July and August, but 2 days are set aside in each month for Landlord-Tenant cases.  Cases have been backing up and now we are going to have one very long day.  I’ll be packing a lunch, no kidding.

The trial list takes a couple of months off, too.  In an effort to keep the cases being appealed from Arbitration from filling up the September list, cases were assigned to judges to be scheduled and heard during the summer.  That makes sense.

Perhaps the time has come to recognize that LT arbitration panels should meet a little more often in the summer.
