Pennsylvania Construction Code Litigation Update

Last week, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court announced its decision in several cases which had been consolidated on the appeal. The cases involved the use of third party agencies to administer and enforce the provisions of the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act in those municipalities which opted in to the enforcement of the Act. I posted on the decisions made by the Commonwealth Court last January. The Supreme Court reversed the Commonwealth Court and upheld the right of a municipality to exclusively use one third party agency for inspections.
