ARGUMENT IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 2009.
AMICUS SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE ON OR BEFORE FEBRUARY 17, 2009
Coleman Herman v. Admit One Ticket Agency, LLC
The issues presented are: whether the plaintiff had standing under the Anti-Scalping Statute, G. L. c. 140, § 185D, to bring this action, where he had not purchased a ticket from the defendant at the quoted price; whether the plaintiff suffered harm such as would allow him to bring a claim under G. L. c. 93A.
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.
