Shirley Wayside Limited Partnership v. Board of Appeals of Shirley
Whether a Land Court judge's finding that a board of appeals incorrectly denied a special permit for the proposed 15 unit expansion of a lawful nonconforming use, a 64 unit mobile home park restricted to residents over the age of 55, lacked support in the evidence or was plainly wrong.
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.
