KYL V. MYRICK  vs.  SUPERIOR COURT DEPARTMENT.[1]

April 18, 2018.

Mandamus.  Practice, Civil, Action in nature of mandamus.  Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

Kyl V. Myrick appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition for relief in the nature of mandamus.  Myrick’s petition sought the reversal of a Superior Court judgment dismissing a civil complaint that he had filed in that court.  That complaint concerned the denial of his applications for criminal complaints in the Boston Municipal Court Department.  In his petition to the single justice, Myrick also challenged the Superior Court judge’s declining to recuse himself from the matter.  The single justice correctly denied both the petition and Myrick’s subsequent request for reconsideration. read more

KYL V. MYRICK  vs.  HARVARD UNIVERSITY.

March 15, 2016.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts. Appeals Court.  Practice, Civil, Stay of proceedings.

     Kyl V. Myrick appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court that denied relief from a ruling of a single justice of the Appeals Court in a case that is currently pending in the Appeals Court.  We affirm.

The case originated in the Superior Court when Myrick filed a complaint against Harvard University alleging employment discrimination.  A judge in the Superior Court dismissed the complaint on Harvard’s motion and denied Myrick’s subsequent attempts to reinstate the case.  Myrick appealed to the Appeals Court and, while his appeal was pending, moved to stay the appeal so that he could file a new complaint and seek additional discovery in the underlying action in the Superior Court.  A single justice of the Appeals Court declined to stay the appeal.  Myrick then requested that a single justice of this court grant relief from the Appeals Court single justice’s order by either staying the appeal in the Appeals Court or remanding the entire matter to the Superior Court. read more
