CIVIL ACTION

  1. 2017-02352-BLS2

 

 

LUBIN & MEYER, P.C.,

Plaintiff

 

vs.

 

JOHN J. MANNING,

Defendant

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER

 ON PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO DISMISS FIVE (5) COUNTS

OF DEFENDANT’S COUNTERCLAIM

 

This action arises from disputes between a law firm, plaintiff Lubin & Meyer, P.C., and a former associate, defendant John Manning.  Plaintiff alleges that Manning breached his fiduciary duties to the firm and also made false representations.  It alleges that as a result of these actions, Manning forfeited his rights under a referral fee agreement entered into at the time of his departure.  Manning has counterclaimed.  The case is now before the Court on the plaintiff’s Motion to dismiss certain counts of that counterclaim, specifically:  Count II (for defamation), Count III (for invasion of privacy), Count V (for intentional infliction of emotional distress), Count VI (for abuse of process) and Count VII (alleging a violation of 93A claim).  This Court concludes that the Motion must be Allowed as to all counts except for Count VI, which will remain in the case. read more

SJC‑11576

JOHN F. ZULLO  vs.  CULIK LAW P.C. & another.[1]

March 17, 2014.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.  Practice, Civil, Small claims procedure.

John Zullo appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition for relief under G. L. c. 211, § 3.  Zullo commenced an action in the small claims session of the District Court against his former attorney and law firm.  Judgment entered for the defendants.  Zullo’s petition sought relief from that judgment.  We have repeatedly stated that a plaintiff who chooses to proceed in the small claims session waives the right to appeal from any adverse judgment, and likewise is not entitled to invoke this court’s extraordinary power of general superintendence in lieu of an appeal to compel review of the judgment.  See Tessema v. Nextel Sys. Corp., 451 Mass. 1007, 1007-1008 (2008); Stevenson v. Mackey, 450 Mass. 1014, 1015 (2007); Pandey v. Ware Div. of the Dist. Court Dep’t, 412 Mass. 1002, 1003 (1992) (“by choosing to pursue their claim as plaintiffs in the small claims session, the plaintiffs waived their right to appeal from any adverse rulings . . . [and] where the plaintiffs chose to pursue the small claims procedure which is ‘not exclusive but an alternative to the formal procedure of the District Court,’ . . . the single justice was warranted in refusing to grant relief under G. L. c. 211, § 3″).  As in each of those cases, the single justice here was warranted in declining to grant extraordinary relief. read more
