One More New Case for the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court announced that it has granted certification in one more new case. The case is Brehme v. Irwin. The question presented, as phrased by the Supreme Court Clerk’s office, is “Under the circumstances presented, did the filing of a warrant to satisfy judgment under Rule 4:48-1 bar plaintiff from filing an appeal, and if not, could plaintiff seek future medical expenses that would exceed her personal injury protection (PIP) coverage under N.J.S.A. 39:6A-12?” A three-judge panel of the Appellate Division, in a concise unpublished per curiam opinion, dismissed the appeal as moot because plaintiff had filed the warrant to satisfy judgment.
