Questions remained following Pennsylvania Supreme Court oral arguments Wednesday, with the justices looking to answer whether defendant Husqvarna Professional Products’ ties to Philadelphia County were sufficient to make transfer of venue from Bucks County proper.

Arguments in Hangey v. Husqvarna Professional Products centered on which factors courts should look at to determine whether a defendant regularly conducts business in a county. In March 2021, the Pennsylvania Superior Court en banc voted 7-2 to reach the same result in the plaintiff’s favor as did the original divided three-judge panel—reversing an order from the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas transferring the case to suburban Bucks County.
