SJC‑11263

OWEN McCANTS  vs.  CLERK OF SUFFOLK SUPERIOR COURT FOR CRIMINAL BUSINESS.

May 14, 2013.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.  Moot QuestionPractice, Civil, Moot case.

Owen McCants appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court dismissing as moot his petition for a writ of mandamus and for a declaratory judgment.  We affirm.

A Superior Court jury convicted McCants of several crimes, and the Appeals Court affirmed the convictions.  See Commonwealth v. McCants, 65 Mass. App. Ct. 1121 (2006).  McCants thereafter filed a motion for a new trial, which was denied.  He then filed a notice of appeal, the record was assembled, and the appeal was entered in the Appeals Court, where it remains pending.  Then, in April, 2012, he filed a petition in the county court, asserting that the trial court clerk’s office had failed to docket several pleadings that he had filed in that court in connection with the motion for a new trial.  In response, the respondent submitted a letter to the county court indicating that the clerk’s office had updated the docket to include the pleadings in question and that the entire record, including those pleadings, had been assembled and forwarded to the Appeals Court.  On the basis that McCants had received the relief that he was seeking — the docketing of his pleadings in the trial court — the single justice dismissed the petition as moot. read more

How Will Sequestration Affect Suffolk County?

The numbers here show the federal employees in Massachusetts by county in 2012, according to the latest figures from Eye on Washington, a DC-based lobbying firm that tracks federal employment. It compiles the data from the Office of Personnel Management, Federal Employment Statistics and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While much has been made written on how the current sequestration battle in Washington could affect the national economy, these numbers are meant to give readers a sense of the sequestration at the local level.

No one knows for certain what the sequestration cuts, some $ 85 billion, will mean exactly. Even if the March 1 federal cuts are enacted, the full effects would not be felt immediately. The government is required to alert impacted agencies of what cuts are to be made and what workers are to be furloughed.

It should be noted, however, that even the suggestion of cuts and the notification process itself could be felt in some community economies. read more
