October 15, 2012
IN RE: E.A. R.A. RESPONDENT
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE AND WYOMING COUNTY HUMAN SERVICES, INTERVENOR, PETITIONERS
Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Order of the Commonwealth Court
AND NOW, this 15th day of October, 2012, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is hereby GRANTED. The issues, as stated by petitioners, are:
1. Whether [the] Commonwealth Court erred by determining that the videotape statement of a subject child is not admissible because the Administrative Law Judge heard testimony describing the statements before viewing the videotape?
2. Whether [the] Commonwealth Court erred by requiring that the videotape statement of a young victim of sexual abuse be corroborated by other evidence?
