JAMES MARTIN  vs.  SUPERIOR COURT DEPARTMENT OF THE TRIAL COURT.

August 18, 2017.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.  Attorney at Law, Disqualification.  District Attorney.

The petitioner, James Martin, appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3.  We affirm.

Martin, an attorney with a practice in the Springfield area, has been indicted by a Hampden County grand jury on charges of rape, in violation of G. L. c. 265, § 22 (), and indecent assault and battery, in violation of G. L. c. 265, § 13H.  He filed a motion to disqualify the Hampden County district attorney’s office from prosecuting the case on the basis that it would constitute a conflict of interest because he has worked closely with that office in resolving cases for a number of years.  After a judge in the Superior Court denied the motion, Martin filed his G. L. c. 211, § 3, petition in the county court.  A single justice denied the petition without a hearing. read more
