Often times, the most difficult legal malpractice cases are those involving transactions. Generally, this is a more difficult case because there is no formal deadline, or process such as in litigation. Jobar Realty Co, Inc. v. Tombalakian et al., No.: A-3660-10T1 (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. Mar. 26, 2012) is case where a court took the time to explain legal malpractice elements as it applies to a situation outside the litigation arena.
Manley v. Memorial Hospital of Salem, C.A. No.: 11-2117, (D. N.J. 2012) is a case which is important because it states the standard of what should be contained in a hostile work environment complaint. A complaint is the legal document by which a party institutes a lawsuit. Within the document, a party must specify the facts which give rise to the complaint. As you will see below, courts look for certain elements in reading complaints.
Seltman v. Exelon Corp.,C.A. No: 11-07195 (E.D.Pa. 2012) is an employment discrimination case fromPennsylvania. The main import of the case is that it analyzes when the statute of limitations begins to run on a case of employment discrimination. A typical case of employment discrimination involves the discrete act making up the discrimination, the termination, and then a filing of a charge with the respective administrative agencies. Theoretically, these times should all be concrete, however more often than not it is a nebulous concept. This case involves some discussion of waiver of rights but the crux of the case is the timeliness analysis.
