Richard B. Tucker, III
Experienced appellate litigator having represented clients in all Pennsylvania Appellate Courts, the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Dick concentrates his practice in the field of litigation, particularly appellate litigation. He has argued cases in the United States Supreme Court, Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Pennsylvania Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth Courts. Dick has handled a variety of civil cases involving general commercial transaction claims, trusts & estates, letters of credit, insurance coverage, workers’ compensation, ERISA benefits and employment issues.
Ferens v. John Deere Co. where he successfully argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court agreed with our client’s position that a federal district court must apply the state law of the state where the lawsuit was filed even after the lawsuit had been transferred to a federal court in another state at the plaintiff’s request. As a result, an injured farmer was granted recourse using the longer statute of limitations of the state in which the lawsuit was filed and in which the defendant company did business. The statute of limitations in the farmer’s home state had expired.
