Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

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

In 2013, the respondent, Kimberley Yout, commenced a product liability action in the Superior Court against Biogen Inc. and Elan Pharmaceuticals, LLC, related to a medication used to treat multiple sclerosis.  She subsequently amended her complaint to include Padmanabhan, a medical doctor, and his company, Scleroplex, Inc., claiming medical malpractice stemming from Padmanabhan’s treatment of her multiple sclerosis with that medication.  Padmanabhan moved to dismiss the claims against both him and, purportedly, Scleroplex, on several bases:  that venue was improper, that service was improper and ineffective, and that the claims were barred by the applicable statute of limitations.[1]  The motion was denied.  Padmanabhan then filed his G. L. c. 211, § 3, petition, which the single justice denied without a hearing. read more
