COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, Petitioner
ALL THAT CERTAIN LOT OR PARCEL OF LAND LOCATED AT 605 UNIVERSITY DRIVE, STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA AND DESCRIBED WITH PARTICULARITY AT DEED BOOK 1419 PAGE 0976 IN THE OFFICE OF THE RECORDER OF DEEDS, TAX PARCEL NUMBER 36-014-123A GREGORY PALAZZARI, Respondent
Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Order of the Commonwealth Court
AND NOW, this 16th day of July, 2013, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is GRANTED. The issues, as stated by petitioner are:
(1) Whether a plurality of the Commonwealth Court erred in holding that the Controlled Substances Forfeiture Act mandates that a hearing he held before property is forfeited and that forfeiture may never be obtained by summary judgment.
(2) Whether a plurality of the Commonwealth Court erred by finding the Rules of Civil Procedure inapplicable to proceedings under the Controlled Substances Forfeiture Act on the theory that the Forfeiture Act provides the "complete procedure" governing forfeiture actions.
