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 OCTOBER 2008.
Commonwealth v. Fremont Investment & Loan & another
At issue is the propriety of a preliminary injunction, based on G. L. c. 93A, s. 2, prohibiting the plaintiff bank from initiating or advancing any foreclosure on certain "presumptively unfair" residential mortgage loans it owns or services in Massachusetts without the consent of the Attorney General, and of a modification of that injunction prohibiting the bank from assigning any such loans to another unless the asset purchase agreements are subject to the terms of the injunction.
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.
