Commonwealth v. Brian Hughes 2009 PA Super 240 (12/14/2009)
Topic: Forgery – Grading – Cashier’s Checks
Summary: The Superior Court concluded that a cashier’s check, unlike a personal check, is not a commercial instrument. Therefore, forging a cashier’s check is a second-degree felony.
*Note: In his Dissenting Opinion, Judge Fitzgerald concludes that a cashier’s check is not an “issue of money,” but a commercial instrument.
