ADOPTION OF DOUGLAS (and five companion cases[1]).

February 17, 2016.

Adoption, Standing, Visitation rights, Care and protection.  Parent and Child, Adoption, Care and protection of minor.   Minor, Visitation rights, Care and protection.  Practice, Civil, Care and protection proceeding, Assistance of counsel.  Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

These cases are appeals of consolidated care and protection petitions concerning six children — Douglas, Tom, Brian, Mark, Cole, and Frank.  The appeals are brought by the biological mother of the six children; by the biological father of the two oldest children (father I) — Douglas and Tom; and by four of the children — Douglas, Tom, Brian, and Mark.  They appeal from the provisions of decrees of the Juvenile Court denying parental visitation after termination of the parental rights of the mother, father I, and the biological father of the four younger children (father II) — Brian, Mark, Cole, and Frank.[2]  The Appeals Court, in a memorandum and order pursuant to its rule 1:28, dismissed the appeals of the mother and father I.  It concluded that neither had standing to challenge the orders concerning visitation because their parental rights had been terminated after the consolidated hearings, pursuant to G. L. c. 119, § 26, and G. L. c. 210, § 3, were concluded, and they had not appealed from the entry of the termination decrees.  See Adoption of Douglas, 87 Mass. App. Ct. 1118 (2015).  With respect to the appeal of the four children, the Appeals Court affirmed the decrees of the Juvenile Court.  Id.  We granted further appellate review, and affirm the Juvenile Court judge’s decrees.

Five Guns, Child Found in South End Bed Bug Search

Boston Police Department

Two South End residents face weapons charges after pest control inspectors found guns in their apartment. Following a search, officers turned up three more guns, some of which had altered serial numbers. 

Boston police officers responded to a report from the Boston Housing police who had found firearms at 16 East Brookline Street on April 5.

When Boston police officers arrived, they observed the two suspects sitting in the parlor area handcuffed. Officers spoke with the Boston Housing Chief Stephen Melia that there were two firearms found under a mattress when Pest reliever employees conducted an inspection of bedbugs in the apartment.

A Pest Reliever employee said that he lifted the mattress in the bedroom and found tow handguns while inspecting for bedbugs. At this point, the worker informed his partner, who phoned their supervisor.

Boston Housing Police were dispatched at about 10:41 a.m.. The front door of the apartment was locked, so officers made contact with the housing manager.
