I am the plaintiff in a ejectment action. I served , by certified mail, a subpoena to my tenants ( Defendants ) to produce documents. Their Attorney filed a motion to quash subpoena because I didn’t give them 20 day notice.

I suggest filing a "lis pendens" against the property in McKean Co. in the Prothonotary's Office there. Anyone looking to purchase that property in the future should see that there is a cloud on the title with that filing.
Driveway. It’s fine if they are there 3-5 minutes, but I have a consistent woman who parks, leaves her car running and blocks the entire driveway for upwards of 10+ minutes.

We are still married but separated. I want to sell the home to my granddaughter but he said because his name is on the loan he will not move out until it is removed. Does he have the right to do this since the title is in my name.
Your husband does not have the right to remain in the home if you are the sole owner. However, if both of you are paying towards the loan, a most important question, which you did not address in your fact summary, if you force him out of the house, he will stop his payments on the loan. Unless...Read more »

Regarding the property you can PA1, it would be very rare, unusual and unexpected for a court to order it back into trust after it has already been distributed. I would say the risk of that is extremely low.
Regarding MI2, this probably is all taking place within the same original case...Read more »
