admin. law - petition for review - amendment - time

Edwards v. UCBR - Cmwlth. Court - July 29, 2010

After a petition for review is filed, the appeal proceeds directly to briefs on the merits, where clarification and detailed analysis of the questions will certainly be made. Thus, once the time for filing a petition for review has expired, the filing of an amended petition is of no import. To the extent it would add additional issues, it is improper; to the extent it does not, it is surplusage.
