I'm playing the devils advocate here and would never brake check you, after cutting you off, I'm just pointing out what lawyers could say.
If you hit him after he has been in front of you for a minute or so, you are right. If you hit him immediately after he pulls in front of you he is at fault. I was on a jury duty about ten years ago and a woman puled out in front of a truck went about twenty feet and stopped to turn left. The judge told us that a hit from behind was NOT always the back guys fault. The truck driver was found NOT guilty.

Here is PA law:

Duties at yield signs.
The driver of a vehicle approaching a yield
sign shall in obedience to the sign slow down to a speed reasonable for the
existing conditions and, if required for safety to stop, shall
stop before
entering a crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then
at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of
approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering. After
slowing down or sto
pping, the driver shall yield the right
way to any
vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as
to constitute a hazard during the time the driver is moving across or within
the intersection of roadways. If a driver is invo
lved in a collision with a
vehicle in the intersection or junction of roadways after driving past a
yield sign, the collision shall be deemed prima facie evidence of failure of
the driver to yield the right
(Dec. 21, 1998, P.L.1126, No.151, eff. 6
0 days)
