Tracy Thurdin v. SEI Boston, Inc.
Whether an employee may assert a claim of gender discrimination against her employer under G. L. c. 93, s. 102, the Massachusetts Equal Rights Act, where the employee may not bring an action against the employer under G. L. c. 151B, because the employer has fewer than six employees.
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.
