The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will consider four issues of first impression in a high-profile class action case over allegedly faulty brakes that could have a major impact on Pennsylvania class action law.

The Samuel-Bassett v. Kia Motors America Inc. case involves a $5.6 million Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas class action verdict awarded to owners of Kia sedans with allegedly faulty braking systems and $4.13 million in attorney fees. Both the verdict and the attorney fees have been upheld by the Pennsylvania Superior Court.
