SJC-11846

MATTER OF CHANDRAKANT SHRIDHAR PANSÉ.

October 6, 2015.

Attorney at Law, Admission to practice.  Supreme Judicial Court, Membership in the bar.  Practice, Civil, Membership in the bar.

On May 13, 2008, Chandrakant Shridhar Pansé applied for admission to the Massachusetts bar.  He took and passed the written bar examination in July, 2008.  At first, the Board of Bar Examiners (board) received no objections to his admission and reported him qualified.  Before he could take the oath of attorney, however, three attorneys in good standing contacted the board, raising significant concerns about whether Pansé “is of good moral character and sufficient acquirements and qualifications” to warrant admission to the bar.  G. L. c. 221, § 37.  See S.J.C. Rule 3:01, § 5.1, as appearing in 411 Mass. 1321 (1992).  After two informal interviews with Pansé, an investigation by an attorney appointed as special counsel, and a formal hearing, the board determined that Pansé was not qualified for admission to the bar and recommended that his application be dismissed.  S.J.C. Rule 3:01, § 5.3, as appearing in 411 Mass. 1321 (1992).  Pansé filed a petition in the county court for a hearing on his application.  A single justice of this court reserved and reported the matter to the full court.  We agree with the board.

SJC-11750

IN THE MATTER OF JAY EDWARD SIMKIN.

April 29, 2015.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.  Board of Bar Overseers.  Practice, Civil, Standing.

Jay Edward Simkin filed a petition in the county court alleging that certain attorneys had committed breaches of the rules of professional conduct in connection with proceedings involving the revocation and reinstatement of his license to carry firearms.  He requested that this court enter findings to that effect, which, he claimed, would lead to bar counsel’s reconsideration of her decision not to pursue his complaints against the attorneys.  The record indicates that the Board of Bar Overseers (board) reviewed bar counsel’s decision not to take further action.  A single justice denied Simkin’s petition without a hearing, reasoning that an “individual who files a complaint with the board lacks standing to challenge in a court action the board’s decision not to prosecute the complaint.”  Simpkin appeals.[1]
