Notable Cases

Sherr Law Group is happy to announce two recent decisions which dismissed purported Civil Rights Claims against Manheim Borough and The York Area Regional Police. 

On March 28, 2024 Judge Jennifer P. Wilson of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, granted a Motion to Dismiss on behalf of Officer Marc Greenly and dismissed him with prejudice from the case.  The matter involved the tragic aftermath of the death of a Middle School student by apparent suicide.  The action was brought by the deceased mother and her other son.  Plaintiffs’ claims against Officer Greenly of the York Area Regional Police consisted of Civil Rights claims in the form of state created danger theory.  Plaintiffs’ claimed that Officer Greenly placed the deceased’s brother in danger by bringing him home to help them search for the deceased.  The brother found the deceased’s body hanging in the basement.  The Court found that under the circumstances Officer Greenly was entitled to Qualified Immunity, and the case was dismissed against him.  The case, however, is continuing against the School District and several of its employees, as well as several students who are alleged to have bullied the deceased.


On February 9, 2024, Judge Gerard McHugh of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, granted Summary Judgment on behalf of Manheim Borough and its Zoning and Code Enforcement Officer in a case where two plaintiffs were alleging discrimination on account of ethnic background.  Plaintiffs alleged that a Commercial Landowner and his Commercial Tenant were fined, and threated; where similarly situated people were not.  Judge McHugh after examining all the evidence, including depositions of all parties and several third parties, concluded that no reasonable jury could find that there was discrimination.

The cases were both handled by Tony Sherr and Stefanie Sherr.

Our Commitment to Norristown, PA

Sherr Law Group, LLP is proud of its Norristown, PA roots. We are a part of the community, working to make a difference. Tony Sherr grew up near Norristown; his father set up his law offices here in the early 1970s and Tony himself worked in the borough starting in 1979. It’s this history that provides us our unique perspective on the county seat of the third-most populous county in the state.

Even as Norristown deteriorated, and businesses left for the surrounding suburbs, the Sherr family remained connected to the community. For some, Norristown became the place lawyers just went to Court. But Tony Sherr got involved in the Greater Norristown Police Athletic League, eventually joining the Board of Directors. This involvement not only allowed him to understand firsthand the challenges that the community faced, it also provided an outlet where they could make a difference. It became clear that the only way to positively impact this community was to be in it; sticking a stake in the ground. This passion led us to commit our resources to Norristown.
