Attorney Cummins is an insurance defense attorney with the Scranton, Pennsylvania law firm of Foley, Cognetti, Comerford, Cimini & Cummins.

The all-important Pennsylvania civil litigation issue presented in this appeal was whether the trial court correctly granted the Defendant’s motion to compel the Plaintiff’s compliance with the discovery of a pre-accident mental health evaluation report concerning the Plaintiff’s prior emotional and mental health in a case where the Plaintiff alleges severe and continuing emotional distress, anxiety, and mental anguish all as a sole result of the motor vehicle accident which was the subject of this litigation.
