SJC-11767

EDGAR RODRIGUEZ[1]  vs.  CITY OF SOMERVILLE.

July 20, 2015.

Massachusetts Tort Claims Act.  Moot Question.  Practice, Civil, Moot case, Presentment of claim under Massachusetts Tort Claims Act, Interlocutory appeal.  Governmental Immunity.  Municipal Corporations, Governmental immunity, Liability for tort.  Notice, Claim under Massachusetts Tort Claims Act.

     After the plaintiff, Edgar Rodriguez acting on behalf of his minor son Rodrigo, commenced this negligence action against the city of Somerville (city), the city filed a motion to dismiss pursuant to Mass. R. Civ. P. 12 (b) (6), 365 Mass. 754 (1974), claiming that the plaintiff failed to meet the presentment requirements set forth in the Massachusetts Tort Claims Act (Act).  See G. L. c. 258, § 4.  A judge in the Superior Court denied the motion, concluding that the letter satisfied the statutory requirements.  The city appealed, and in doing so argued that the appeal, which was interlocutory, was proper pursuant to the doctrine of present execution.  The Appeals Court concluded that the doctrine of present execution does not apply and dismissed the appeal.  See Rodriguez v. Somerville, 86 Mass. App. Ct. 1 (2014).  The case is now before this court on further appellate review.
