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 NOVEMBER 2008.
Elizabeth Krafchuk, trustee, & another v. Planning Board of Ipswich
At issue are the findings and rulings of a Superior Court judge hearing an appeal pursuant to G. L. c. 41, § 81BB, regarding: the standing of the abutters to challenge a proposed subdivision; whether the property was grandfathered under the provisions of G. L. c. 40A, § 6; and whether the Planning Board's waiver of its regulations exceeded its authority.
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.
