SJC-10517 Commonwealth v. Quintos Q., a juvenile
SJC-10526 Commonwealth v. Luzander Montoya
The issue presented in these cases paired for argument is whether the evidence was sufficient to warrant an adjudication of delinquency for, or guilty of, resisting arrest.
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.
