In the Matter of Simkin (Lawyers Weekly No. 10-071-15)

NOTICE:  All slip opinions and orders are subject to formal revision and are superseded by the advance sheets and bound volumes of the Official Reports.  If you find a typographical error or other formal error, please notify the Reporter of Decisions, Supreme Judicial Court, John Adams Courthouse, 1 Pemberton Square, Suite 2500, Boston, MA, 02108-1750; (617) 557-1030; SJCReporter@sjc.state.ma.us   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]   The single justice properly denied relief because, regardless of the mechanism employed, a private individual cannot prosecute a judicial action for attorney discipline.  “There simply is no such private right of action.”  Matter of a Request for an Investigation of an Attorney, 449 Mass. 1013, 1014 (2007) (complainant may not “commence a judicial action challenging bar counsel’s decision and seek a judicial order compelling bar counsel to act in a certain way”).  That is essentially what Simkin seeks to accomplish here.  He filed complaints with the board, as was his right; bar counsel investigated but declined to pursue them; and, after review, the board determined not to proceed.  Simkin has no further standing in the matter.  See id.  See also Ellis, petitioner, 460 Mass. 1020, 1021 (2011).   Judgment affirmed.     The case was submitted on the papers filed, accompanied by a memorandum of law. Jay Edward Simkin, pro se.   [1] Simkin filed a memorandum and appendix pursuant to S.J.C. Rule 2:21, as amended, 434 Mass. 1301 (2001).  That rule does not apply here because Simkin’s petition does not challenge an “interlocutory ruling in the trial court.”  Id.  It is evident from his submission and from the papers in the county court, however, that he has no standing to maintain the action.
