Grant of Reconsideration Ends Appeal

An alleged incapacitated person moved the Orphans’ Court to reconsider the appointment of her son and daughter-in-law as plenary guardians, and the court granted the motion and scheduling a hearing. The alleged incapacitated person later filed a timely notice of appeal, but the Superior Court held that under Pa.R.A.P. 1701(b)(3) the grant of reconsideration rendered inoperative the notice of appeal, and the appeal was quashed. In re: M.D.A., an Alleged Incapacitated Person, 1142 MDA 2022 (12/4/2023) (non-precedential).
