Single Justice Practice in the Massachusetts Appeals Court @ Zoom Webinar
Apr 29 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

One of the unique features of the Massachusetts appellate system involves single justice practice in the Appeals Court. Municipal counsel may consider petitioning the single justice for relief from a decision involving an injunction or interlocutory order, such as the denial of a motion to dismiss, summary judgment motion, or discovery order. However, petitions are granted only in limited circumstances and only certain relief is available, and counsel must comply with specific requirements for filing a petition. This program will provide an overview of single justice practice from the perspective of the Appeals Court.

Program participants will include Appeals Court Associate Justice John Englander, Clerk Joseph Stanton, and Assistant Clerk Anne Thomas.
