Denial of Disqualification of Counsel Not Appealable

The denial of disqualification of counsel representing multiple beneficiaries is not an appealable order under the collateral order doctrine even when there is alleged to be a non-waivable conflict of interest among the beneficiaries when the counsel did not previously represent other parties and there is no other allegation of irreparable harm. In re: Shirley Weingberg Revocable Trust, 940 WDA 2022 (Pa. Super. 11/2/2023) (non-precedential). (In a concurring opinion, Justice Bowes concluded that the appeal was frivolous and a proper subject of an award of legal fees.)
