THE SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT IS SOLICITING AMICUS BRIEFS OR MEMORANDA FROM INTERESTED PARTIES IN THE FOLLOWING MATTER PENDING BEFORE THE COURT
ARGUMENT IS SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 2008.
Ross E. Mitchell v. Board of Bar Examiners
Petitioner, a member of the bar of California and a graduate of a law school neither approved by the American Bar Association nor authorized by the Commonwealth to grant law degrees, challenges on equal protection grounds the constitutionality of Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:01, where his education would not qualify him to take the bar examination but would satisfy the requirements for admission to the bar on motion.
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.
