Reply To: AWA Loses in Pennsylvania’s Highest Court


I think its funny in the press release they did not mention how the new bill “fixes” Muniz. Even if they did make the registry non-punitive, I would argue it was punitive as of the start date and as such cannot be applied retroactively. First, I didn’t know that Muniz needed “fixing”. If you meant reversing the effects of the Muniz decision, I didn’t know the Pa General Assembly can override the Pa Supreme Court. No way the Attorney General defends this bill if it becomes law. Can you imagine arguing before the Supreme Court that their decision can be overridden by the General Assembly?
