Charles Lev v. Beverly Enterprises-Massachusetts, Inc.
Whether an employer, which called a business meeting at a bar where a supervisor and an employee consumed alcohol in violation of written company policy, may be held liable in negligence to a pedestrian injured shortly thereafter when struck by an automobile driven by the intoxicated employee.
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.
