Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

Justice E. Ainooson appeals from a judgment of the county court denying, without a hearing, his petition for relief under G. L. c. 211, § 3.  We affirm.

In 2013, Ainooson commenced an action in the Superior Court against a number of individual defendants.  After receiving additional time to effect service, Ainooson filed a motion to waive service or to deem the defendants served.  That motion was allowed.  However, the judge vacated her allowance of the motion after the defendants filed a motion for reconsideration.  A different Superior Court judge subsequently ordered Ainooson to make service by regular mail at his own expense, with no further extensions to be allowed.  Ainooson’s G. L. c. 211, § 3, petition challenged these rulings.  After Ainooson filed his petition, but before the single justice ruled on it, a judgment entered in the Superior Court dismissing the complaint.  Ainooson timely filed a notice of appeal in the Superior Court. read more
