KeywordsMoot Question. Practice, Civil, Moot case. Trial Court. Public Records

The SJC today issued its decision in Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights & Economic Justice v. Court Administrator, et al in which it upheld a Single Justice’s dismissal of the case which sought a court order that the Trial Court produce certain records (thus affirming the Superior Court) as the Public Records Law does not apply to the judiciary, and the issue in any event became moot when the Court provided what documents it had that were responsive to the so-called public records request.  For the full text of the case, click on the following link: LAWYERS’ COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE vs. COURT ADMINISTRATOR OF THE TRIAL
