Amid ongoing COVID-19 mitigation efforts, Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court today announced its oral argument schedule for May 11-15, 2020.

All arguments will be conducted remotely by advanced video communication technology.

The Court schedule and links for media and the public to view proceedings is available here.

The Commonwealth Court was established in 1968 and is one of Pennsylvania's two statewide intermediate appellate courts. The Commonwealth Court has subject matter jurisdiction over state and local government matters. It also acts as a trial court when lawsuits are filed by or against Commonwealth officials and Commonwealth agencies. 

Appellate cases are generally heard by panels of three judges in Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, although, on occasion, the Court sits in other locations. Cases may also be heard by a single judge or by en banc panels of seven judges.
