The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has held that the Comparative Negligence Act has modified the Uniform Contribution Among Tortfeasors Act to require a non-settling tortfeasor to pay his full pro rata share of damages, notwithstanding the fact that the consideration paid by the settling tortfeasor for a release from the plaintiff exceeds the settling tortfeasor's jury determined pro rata share of damages.
