ARGUMENT IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 2009
AMICUS SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE ON OR BEFORE SEPTEMBER 21, 2009
Commonwealth v. Mark Narcisse
Whether police officers had a reasonable suspicion of criminal activity that warranted their alighting from the cruiser and conducting a pat frisk of the defendant; whether police officers had an objective safety concern that warranted a protective pat frisk.
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.
