COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, RESPONDENT
SIMON RABAN, PETITIONER
Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Superior Court
AND NOW, this 4th day of September, 2012, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is GRANTED. The issue, rephrased for clarity, is: Whether the Superior Court correctly held that Section 305(a)(1) of the Dog Law, 3 P.S. § 459-305(a)(1), is a strict liability offense. In briefing this issue, the parties are directed to include a discussion within the framework of the Statutory Construction Act, 1 Pa.C.S.A. §§ 1501 et seq., as to whether the General Assembly intended Section 305(a)(1) to be a strict liability offense.
