The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently and explicitly recognized the tort of aiding and abetting fraud: Marion v. Bryn Mawr Trust Co, 288 A.3d 76 (Pa. 2023). This case is highly significant because it reflects the Supreme Court's recognition and approval of a new cause of action that allows victims of fraud to target deep pockets.
This one-hour CLE will discuss the development of the tort, cover the applicable Restatement provision and review the arguments of the parties and the friend of the court briefs that were filed with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in this case.
