A motion to quash is a formal request to have a prior order or ruling invalidated, nullified or voided. It is applicable in both civil and criminal matters. This type of request can only be made in certain circumstances and is usually, but not always, presented before the case goes to trial in a higher court.
Gerry Fagan's primary practice area is civil litigation, with an emphasis on products liability (involved in the defense of such products as automobiles, ATVS, motor scooters, vaccines, industrial trenching machines, and products containing asbestos); personal injury defense (including clients such as Gallagher Bassett and GEICO); bad faith insurance claims (including clients such as Sedgwick Claims Management); medical malpractice claims (OMNSIC), and municipal liability.
