THE SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT IS SOLICITING AMICUS BRIEFS OR MEMORANDA FROM INTERESTED PARTIES IN THE FOLLOWING MATTER PENDING BEFORE THE COURT
ARGUMENT IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR MAY 2008.
AMICUS SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE ON OR BEFORE APRIL 21, 2008.
Commonwealth v. Luis Santiago
Whether the motion judge correctly allowed the defendant's motion to suppress various narcotics and stolen property seized from his residence, on the ground that the information in the affidavit in support of the search warrant for stolen property (a lawn mower, a tool box on wheels and a BB gun) did not support the issuance of a no-knock warrant.
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020). Parties filing amicus briefs are expected to comply with the requirements of Rules 17, 19 and 20 of Mass. Rules of Appellate Procedure. Amicus briefs, to assist the court, should focus on the ramifications of a decision and not solely on the interests of the parties filing such briefs.
