[Editor’s note: All court offices in the state were closed today. There will be an update on Delonte Shaw-Cannon tomorrow.]
From the October 5th, 2013 post on this site (click here for the original).
I am making this afternoon’s update a separate post because it is long and this is a warning that some may find this difficult to read. I was interested in what type of cases District Judge Bruce Roth’s partner in his private firm, attorney John H. May, handled. I didn’t get very far until I noticed the name Yelcick.
This was one of the largest miscarriages of justice in Lancaster County in the last few years and there is a commenter to this site (“huh?”) who often brings this case up.
May sued former doctor John Yelcick in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas and the case, because they are asking for more than $75,000 in damages, was subsequently moved to the Federal Court in the Eastern District of PA and it is currently ongoing (click here).
Yelcick served 15 days in prison for this – click here for LNP’s, “Former LGH doctor who moved dead body will serve 15 days in prison.”
He did much more than move a dead body. Once again, some people may find this lawsuit very disturbing (click here for the full suit in the Lancaster Court of Common Pleas and where the below screenshots were taken).
— One other note: On the lawsuit in the Lancaster Common Pleas Court, May lists his firm as The Personal Injury Law Group, LLC – the one he shares with Roth. On the federal lawsuit he lists his firm as the Lancaster firm of May, May & Zimmerman, LLP.
