For Immediate Release
Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder attorney Luke T. Weber has been appointed to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s Committee on Rules of Evidence. His role is effective October 1, 2022.
The Committee on Rules of Evidence was formed in 1998 by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to aid and advise the court with issuing general rules governing all court proceedings in the state. The committee provides recommendations to the court regarding evidence law matters by monitoring the application of rules and developments in case law as well as identifying areas in which rules of evidence should be revised or clarified.
“It is humbling to have received an appointment from the Supreme Court to serve on the Committee,” Weber said. “The Rules of Evidence are integral to what we do as trial attorneys, and I look forward to working with the Committee and aiding the Court in its ongoing review process.”
Committee members are appointed by the Supreme Court typically for a term of six years. They must be knowledgeable about the Pennsylvania Rules of Evidence and have trial court experience. The committee typically consists of a small number of judges and attorneys throughout the state. Hon. Wendy G. Rothstein of Montgomery County has also been appointed at this time.
“This appointment is a tremendous honor and a testament to Luke’s experience and skill as a litigator,” said Managing Partner Jeff Lobach. “Since 2012, Luke has been involved in more than 100 cases across the Commonwealth in state and federal courts. As a practicing litigator, engaged daily in court proceedings, Luke is well-suited to serve on the Rules Committee. Based on his impressive background, diligence and attention to detail, we have no doubt that he will be a great asset to the Committee.”
Weber is a trial attorney in Barley Snyder’s Litigation and Health Care groups. He concentrates his practice on defending doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals against medical malpractice claims. He also maintains a commercial litigation practice. Weber currently serves on the board of directors as treasurer for the Lancaster Bar Association.
